On Thursday 5th March 2020 we will be celebrating World Book Day. This is a day where children throughout the world will celebrate their favourite authors and books.
To celebrate this day in school we are asking that children dress up as a character from one of their favourite characters from their class books. If children choose to dress up, we are asking that they donate £1, which will then be used to buy new books for their book corners. If a whole class come dress-up then they get 2500 class points.
We would really like children to make their own costumes and we will be looking for the most creative costume. Any children who make their own costume will win a house point ball for their house.
Here are some websites to help you create a great world book day outfit.
Throughout the day, children will be taking part in activities based on the joy a book brings. This is a special day where all around the word can share their favourite stories. Your child may also bring in their favourite story to share with their class this could be as a reading a book, reading their own story or telling a story aloud from their family.
If any parents would like to tell a story in their home language to the children, please let your child’s class teacher know.
