World Book Day takes place on Thursday, 1st March, 2018. At school today, your child has been given a £1 World Book Day token. If, for any reason, your child hasn’t received a token, please ask him/her to see Mrs Hands.
On March 1st, your child may attend school dressed as his/her favourite book character. For this privilege the children will be asked to donate one pound and the money raised will be used towards helping to purchase new books for our school library.
Following the success of last year’s turning a potato into a book character competition, there will be the opportunity for each child to enter another in-house competition. This year, children are being asked to paint, on an A4 or A3 piece of paper, a picture of their favourite character or scene from a book. All of the paintings, which need to have the child’s name and year group printed on the back, can be brought into school from Monday, 26th February. On World Book Day, the paintings will be taken into the school hall and one winner will be chosen from each class. Every class will be given time to look at the paintings in the hall and they will then be displayed in school. It is important that the paintings are produced by the children and that they reflect their age and ability. Some other activities will be on offer during the day. In their English lessons, children will be asked to write a story of their own which includes the character that they have chosen to dress up as. They will also be asked to design a book mark, and children in certain year groups will swap classes briefly in order to share a story with a child from a different class.
Thank you for your support.
