Thursday 02 March 2017

This year is the 20th event - find out more at 'World Book Day 2017

World Book Day 2017

To celebrate we will be taking part in lots of things 'booky' - there's even home learning for the week of World Book Day.


We have lots of exciting whole school activities planned for the day itself, with just a few of these detailed below:


Book character mufti

Come to school dressed in mufti as your favourite book/poem character or author.  You might choose to be Elmer, the Gruffalo, or you could be Max from Where the Wild Things Are and come to school in your pyjamas.  The possibilities are endless!  We will collect voluntary donations of £1.00; all proceeds will go to Book Aid International. 

Reading in class with your child

Parents are most welcome to come into class to share a reading book with their child from 8.45am – 9.00am.  It would be lovely to see you there.

Second hand book fair

A second hand book fair is planned for after school on Friday 3rd March.  In order to make this happen (in terms of organising donations, running the stalls, redistributing unsold books etc.), a group of parents have volunteered to run this project.  Please leave any donations of good quality books in the Group Room by Friday morning.

Poem in a day

Each class will receive a delivery of a surprise poem that they will have to learn in a day ready for a poetry recital in the afternoon.

Story carousel

The day will end with all teachers reading one of their favourite stories … but to classes other than their own!

World Book Day tokens

Each child will be given a £1.00 World Book Day token during the first week after half term.  There are lots of specially written books for all ages and interests that only cost £1.00.  Have a look at www.worldbookday.com for the full range of books on offer.

*The Corsham Bookshop will be coming to the book fair on Friday with a selection of books the children can use their token to purchase!*
