I’m standing next to The Enormous Crocodile and a very purple Violet Beauregarde as a sea of colourful characters sing enthusiastically (some dance where they are sitting) to the songs from Matilda. Yes, it is World Book Day and I’m watching an assembly in the Junior school. An opportunity for all the children to come together and share in this day collectively. It is obvious from the smiling faces of children from year 3 to 6 that this is a fun day, an experience day! A day to celebrate through song, stories and art work. What a privileged peak into our children’s world within school!
