11 hours ago Posted on 23rd Feb 2024 by Emily Harrison World Book Day Friday 8th March 2024 World Book Day is taking place on Friday 8th March. As a school we are going to be celebrating this day and have chosen the theme “Snuggle up with a good book!” On this day, we are asking pupils to come into school wearing their favourite pyjamas and snuggly clothes. This is so we can all snuggle up with a good book and immerse ourselves in the world of literature. Children are invited to bring their favourite book from home. Throughout the day, pupils will take part in a range of exciting hands on and virtual activities to enhance their reading and ensure they are continuing to grow their love of reading. There will also be some challenges such as guess which staff member is snuggled up with a good book. Parents are invited into school to share a book with their child on Friday 8th March, from 2:50pm. Please enter via the main office where you will be shown to your child’s class. At the end of the shared reading session, please leave the school via the office to sign out. Children will be given a £1 book token to be spent at our school Book Fair or in a local bookstore on a range of identified World Book Day texts. You can find your local bookstore and have a look at the books available by visiting: https://www.worldbookday.com/books/ From Friday 8th March – Wednesday 13th March we will have our annual book fair. The book fair will be held in the South Hall on these dates from 3:30-4:00pm. This an opportunity for you and your child to browse a range of exciting books from a range of genres and purchase one or maybe more. Further information regarding the book fair will be sent nearer the time.
