World Book Day – Thursday 1 March 2018

26 Feb 18
This year we are celebrating World Book Day on Thursday, 1 March and we would like you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion.  World Book Day celebrates the joy and worth of books and reading, especially for children.  At the beginning of the week every child will receive a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of ten special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more.  The visiting Book Fair will be in school the following week if your child wishes to save their token until then.  You can find out more about the books at worldbookday.com/books.

On Thursday, 1 March we would like to invite children to come to school dressed as their favourite book character.  The costume can be as simple or as elaborate as you like!  You can find some costume ideas here: worldbookday.com/dressing-up.  If you would like to, children can donate £1 to ‘Book Aid International’ (www.bookaid.org) and help send books to children in African countries where access to reading material is limited.  We would also like to invite children to bring to school their favourite book to share with their class.  You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day by reading together regularly and joining your local library if you are not yet members.  For more information about World Book Day and ideas on sharing books at home, visit worldbookday.com.

In addition to World Book Day, lots more exciting events will be taking place during the week.  This will include a visit from Mr and Mrs Twit in Monday morning’s assembly in addition to other whole school events and challenges involving Queens House and The Abbey.
