We had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day last week. We had to decorate our door with our favourite book. Miss Mohammed asked all the children and they had a vote to decide which book Onyx class should recreate. We had read all the Love Monster stories by Rachel Bright when it was Valentine’s Day and loved them all. It was difficult to decide on a favourite but we decided on LOVE MONSTER AND THE LAST CHOCOLATE 🙂
Everyone worked hard together to make the different parts we needed for our door. First we needed to make a Love Monster. We had to find a lot of different red materials so we could make him the right colour.
Then we made the chocolate box look like the purple one in the story. We added a sign which said ‘chocolates’ by looking at the book and copying what it said. The Love Monster also needed some extra details like his arms and eyes.
After that we decided to make some chocolates for the chocolate box and to add to the decorations. To do this we had to make salt dough and then make it look like chocolate shapes which fit in the chocolate box.
Before we could use them they needed painting the right colours.
Finally we put it all up on the door and some children helped Miss Parker decide what went around the door. We even added a sign asking, “Would you share your last chocolate?”, when people lifted the chocolate box up.
Do you think you would share your last chocolate? Can you remember what the Love Monster did?
We all enjoyed making our door and also getting to see the different doors around school.
We also found a surprise for us in the classroom. The Love Monster came to visit and brought us the special World Book Day book, Ten Little Bookworms. You’ll soon be getting a special World Book Day token which you can exchange for this book for free. Or you can get £1 off the books at our Book Fair which is in school next week.
After we’d read the book tried to work out where the rest of the chocolates had gone and what we should do with the last chocolate. What would you do with the last chocolate?
Thankfully the Love Monster found them in the end 🙂
