World Book Day Thursday 5th March 2020
We are celebrating World Book Day (Thursday 5th March) within school. As part of World Book Day every primary school aged children will receive a book token. These are redeemable in all major bookstores. The children can exchange their token for a special World Book Day book. Just look out for the special stickers.
Your child will receive their special book token from school, please put it to good use! School will be holding a book fair for your children to buy some exciting new books from Thursday 12th March 2020 to Thursday 19th March 2020. Please spend a few minutes looking through the book fair leaflet, you will be sure to find many books that are suited to your child. Book fair will be open from 8.30 am to 8.40 am each morning and 3.00pm to 3.30pm each afternoon. If you are unable to attend please complete the order form inside the leaflet provided.
I am sure you will agree that reading is of great importance and we really do appreciate all of your support. In return for your book purchases, school will receive free books for your children to use. Every book you buy earns commission for your school. We look forward to seeing you there. Don’t forget you can use your special World Book Day Token to redeem £1 off any book at our Book Fair.
Dress As Your Favourite Character.
To make World Book Day even more special the children will be asked to come into school on Thursday 5th March dressed as a character from their favourite book; this should be great fun! Could all children please bring in their favourite book to share during the day.
We will also be running a reading competition over half term. The children simply need to record when and what they have read over the holidays and return this to school to be in with a chance of winning a special prize from our Book Fair. Look out for our Share a Million Stories – Reading Competition Form which the children will bring home over half term.
