Dear parent / carer
It may be a lockdown but we are very much looking forward to celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 4th March as part of our annual Book Week in school.
As usual we are planning to spend lots of time in book-related activities with your children, and although the day is more low-key this year as the majority of children are remote learning, we are hoping to re-create many of our favourite World Book Day capers. Please read on to see what we have planned:
- World Book Day March 4th – rather than dress as a book character, all children to dress in their pyjamas / onesie for school or remote learning.
- The teaching staff have posted videos of themselves reading chapters from their favourite books – a link will be sent out to children on World Book Day.
- Potato Book Characters – all children are invited to create a favourite book character from a potato (examples available online). If your child is in school, please send them into school with a decent size potato next week. Children at home to post their creations on Seesaw.
- Book cover competition – all children draw their interpretation of a favourite book cover, or the cover of a book they would like to write. All children to bring their completed entries to school on Monday 8th.
- All children will be receiving a £1 book token which can be redeemed at a range of shops including Tesco and Sainsburys. Online tokens will be emailed to remote learners.
- All children can choose a book to take home from our huge range of pre-loved books. Those children currently at home can choose one when they are back in school on March 8th.
Teachers have lots of fun planned for the children, including author and illustrator masterclasses, so there’s lots for all children to look forward to and enjoy.
