World Book Day 2020!

6th March 2020

Yesterday saw Chesnut Lodge overrun with princesses, giants, foxes, dinosaurs and all kinds of other characters for 2020’s World Book Day!

The Matildas and BFGs were out in force as Chesnut Lodge celebrated the day. Pupils in our primary department came dressed as their favourite book characters and completed activities around favoured stories. In our secondary department there was a Roald Dahl themed day with activities based on some of the author’s most famous works.

Take a look at some of our pictures and see what pupils had to say.
