A Mad Hatters Tea Party was held on Thursday 23rd March for the winners of the 'Book Spud' competition that took place on World Book Day. The children enjoyed playing team games before sitting down to delicious tea time treats in the library.
As an extra surprise, raising great excitement in the process, an Easter egg hunt was organised for the children. Everyone had lots of fun!

The children and staff of St Stephen's Junior School dressed as their favourite book characters to celebrate World Book Day on March 2nd. It was wonderful to see so many imaginative and original costumes! Our day began with a special performance of Eoin Colfer's 'The Legend of Spud Murphy'. Mr Bowles made a particularly terrifying librarian (thankfully nothing like our own librarian, the lovely Mrs Chidgey).
Children then swapped classrooms to hear the stories they'd signed up for; the identities of the storytellers came as a surprise to all. We hope that many will have been inspired to read on, or find other books by the same author to enjoy at home. During the afternoon, children got creative, designing 'Book Spuds' to resemble their favourite fictional characters. We think you'll agree that their creations were truly spudtacular! A prize potato was chosen from each class and the winners received an invitation to Mrs Chidgey's Mad Hatter's Tea Party.
