World Book Day takes place on Thursday 2nd 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 Nursery. 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 Wednesday 15th February. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would love to know your childs favourite bedtime story, if you could also take a photo of you both reading at bedtime and post it to your childs learning journal we can talk about the childrens favourite books in Nursery during the day.
We will use this day as an opportunity to raise funds to replenish our books and story props. We will be asking children and staff to each donate £1.00. The donation will be added onto parent pay.
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
