World Book Day takes place on Thursday 5th March and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion. The day will be spent engaging in activities in celebration of World Book Day to promote the value of reading,
Our theme for world book day is bedtime stories. We would like all children to come to school dressed in their pyjamas or onesies.
Join us in our ‘Get Caught Reading’ photo challenge. Children need to ‘Get Caught Reading’ in unusual locations and will need to ask a family member or friend to take a photograph of them which can be emailed into base. We will create a display showing off the most unusual places our children have been reading and a prize will be given to the child who has been caught reading in the most unusual location. Photos need to be emailed into school by Monday 2nd March.
There will also be a Book Swap on the day. We are asking if your child could bring in books they have already read at home and wouldn’t mind swapping with a child for another book. Please can we ask that you explain to your child that they will come home with another book and not their own on the day. We do need to ask that every child has a book to swap, if this is difficult please let your child’s class teacher know in base.
We will use this day as an opportunity to raise funds to replenish our story props. We will be asking children and staff to each donate £1.00. The donation will be added onto parent pay by the end of this week.
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, please visit worldbookday.com. Children are never too young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous. We hope, like us, you will use World Book Day to celebrate it with your child.
Thank you again for your continued support
