Inquisitive pupils from Cundall Manor School have been inspired to do something ‘booky’ for World Book Day thanks to an award-winning independent bookshop.
Over 120 pupils from Cundall Manor School visited the White Rose Book Café in Thirsk to receive a hands on lesson in all things literary to coincide with World Book Day.
Pupils from Year 3 – 6 visited the award winning White Rose Books & Coffee Bar for a series of interactive workshops including story-time, working with staff at the shop and writing their own story. The pupils then had the chance to enjoy choosing a book for their own dedicated Key Stage 2 Library within the School.
Sue Lake, Owner of the White Rose Book Café, said: “It was lovely to see Cundall Manor children sharing their excitement about books and stories in a proper bookshop.”
She added: “World Book Day is all about reading for pleasure and the variety of books they chose reflects the quality and variety of childrens’ books today.”
“Many of our customers commented on how smart and well-behaved the pupils were – a real credit to Cundall.”
To round off the day the children enjoyed a homemade cake and refreshments from the café.
