World Book Day 2023

World Book Day was celebrated by all at Mayfield with great enthusiasm, from dressing up as our favourite book characters to lots of reading taking place throughout the school all day! The effort taken by staff and pupils with their costumes was very impressive and the winners from each class were announced in assembly on Friday, where they each received a chocolate Easter egg! To start the day each class from upper school visited a class from lower down the school and shared their favourite books. There were a variety of reading activities taking place in each class and there was even some use of technology in Lower II, who made talking book reviews using the I-pads. Pupils were treated to a performance of Matilda by the Street Katz group and were amazed by their teamwork and slick acting skills. Everyone was on the look out for The Big Bad Wolf (A.K.A Mr Draper), who was trying to catch those three pigs! Finally, the generosity of our Mayfield family towards our tuck shop has now raised over one thousand pounds for the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria! Thank you all so much for your donations. We have used the money to buy sleeping bags, mats and food parcels.
