On Thursday 4th March, in a stunning array of costumes for World Book Day, we met Anjali Mittal, author of ‘The Convent Rules!’ and ‘The Mystery of the Art Teacher’. First, Anjali asked us what characters we were and which book we were from. Then, Anjali read us an extract from ‘The Convent Rules!’ and followed it with the blurb from ‘Mystery of the Art Teacher’.

Afterwards, Anjali explained that there were some activities for us to do and a competition (one where you had make up a rhyme). In addition, Anjali was also signing bookmarks and many of us were lucky enough to have them signed. At the end of an eventful forty-five minutes, none of us wanted to go!

World book day

As I walked into the assembly hall I was flabbergasted to see all of the amazing, colourful costumes – a real feast for the eyes! Pupils were dressed as an array of fabulous book-related character. Year 3 had a real treat in store – a visit from the author ‘Anjali Mittal’. She talked to us about her two new adventure stories.

‘The Convent Rules!’ and ‘Mystery of the Art teacher’ and even read us a short chapter to whet our appetites. We were fortunate enough to choose to buy the books and have them signed. It is a brilliant part of ‘World Book Day’ because I love reading and writing and it inspired me to read more and more!
