World Book Day Dioramas

As part of a very unusual Lockdown World Book Day 2021 children were invited to create a 3-dimensional scene to illustrate a character, the plot, a genre, or a chapter of a story. 

Dioramas can creatively pinpoint a moment from a book and show a deeper level of understanding of the action or the characters in a story.

 

            

Shay Ireland from Owl's class has skilfully created a diorama inspired by the final chapter from Yr5/6's lockdown learners class reader: Room 13 by Robert Swindells.

Shay would highly recommend this creepy story about a school trip to an English seaside town.  This brilliant book re-imagines the story of Dracula for children. The central character is called Fliss, one night she has a bad dream just before going on her school trip to Whitby. As the school trip goes on, she sees her dream coming true!

Callum Saunders from Owl's made this absolutely amazing Gingerbread house from the traditional tale of Hansel and Gretel as a part of his home learning World Book Day Celebrations!

He cleverly used not only homemade gingerbread for the structure he selected a range of sweets and chocolates as well as foliage from his garden to decorate this masterpiece!

Lucy Whitcombe from Owl's class designed and created this brilliant diorama at home for World Book Day.  She was inspired by an event in one of her favourite chapters in the Harry Potter stories.  " Ron receives a howler from home, after taking family car." Well Done Lucy!
