Going Dotty for International Dot Day


Throughout the week pupils across EYFS, KS1 and KS2 have been making their mark and participating in decorating a dot to celebrate International Dot Day on Thursday 15th September.  

The annual festivity was first introduced to classrooms in 2009 and refers to teacher, Terry Shay, introducing his class to Peter H. Reynolds’ book ‘The Dot’, in a tale of trusting your personal abilities and having the courage to ‘make your mark’.  

International Dot Day each year encourages individuals to share their creations as they embark on a journey of self-discovery and expressionism, with the aim of inspiring others around the world to embrace what makes them unique and to celebrate creativity and art.

Pupils in Junior School were encouraged to decorate their dots in any way personal to them and using materials of their choosing, inviting a magnitude of colour and creativity as they set to work in their House Teams to produce wonderful large-scale posters in this morning’s assembly. 

In a collaborative celebratory approach to break time, the girls took to the playground to create colourful artwork, resulting in a vibrant display of chalk pictures, certain to brighten they day of anyone who sees them.

The girls were also invited to wear something dotty to mark the occasion and to celebrate individuality as can be seen in our online gallery from the day.
