World Book Day

22 February 2020

World Book Day


We will be supporting WORLD BOOK DAY this year. To allow all children to experience the activities we will be celebrating all week.

We would like parents/Grandparents to come in and read every day, either for the whole session or part of it. There will be a sign up sheet in the entrance hall, please give up a few hours in your day to enjoy a book with our children.

We would also like the children to dress up as a character from a book. PLEASE NO SUPERHEREOS OR PRINCESSES.

We will also be holding a book swap, why not have a clear out over half term, bring them in and swap them for a different book.

Also, we have set you a half term challenge- COULD YOU READ A BOOK IN AN UNUSUAL PLACE?

Why not take a photo and send it in or send me a photo via Facebook of your child reading in the bath, up a tree, in bed, on the beach- the most unusual will win a prize.
