Work Book Day 2016

Work Book Day takes place on Thursday 3rd March 2016, and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child make the most of this special occasion. Work Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help get them started on their reading journey, every child receives a £1 World Book Day book token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special 31 World Book Day books or used to get 31 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at www.worldbookday.com/books.

 

Your child’s token is enclosed and can be redeemed at most UK bookshops. Please help your child to use it on or around World Book day by visiting your local bookshop your local bookshop (if you need help finding one, visit www.booksellers.org.uk/bookshopsearch) . The World Book Day tokens are valid from Monday 29th February – Sunday 27th March 2016.

 

Here’s what we will be doing on World Book day on THURSDAY 3RD MARCH:

NON UNIFORM DAY: Children are encouraged to come in their clothes from home with a hope that they will dress up as their favourite book characters. For example, The Gruffalo, Where’s Wally? Winnie The Witch etc. Please do not feel pressured to buy a costume, ideas of making costumes can be found at http://www.bookaid.org/get-involved/world-book-day/world-book-day-dress-up/

KS2 STORY WRITING COMPETITION: We would like KS2 children to write, draw, and use photography to make a comic strip about where their reading takes them. What magical fantasy lands have you been to through your reading? What are the characters like? Are there baddies in your books?

WORLD BOOK DAY ASSEMBLY: In the morning before break we will be holding an assembly to award the top 3 stories/drawings with certificates. Also, each class will vote for the best dressed boy and girl, and all costumes will be celebrated during the assembly.

STORY TELLING EVENING: Come and join us after school for an enchanted story telling adventure at 5:30pm on Thursday 3rd March in Class 1. this is open to all children in the school and parents. We will be offering hot chocolate and biscuits whilst teachers read their favourite stories. Please fill in the return slip below and return back to class teacher by Tuesday 1st March ( so we know whether the hall is required.)

World Book Day tries to help as many children across the world to get better at reading and as part of this, they aim to raise money for Book Aid International and we ask for a voluntary donation of a maximum of £1 to help them with this cause.

Children are never to young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous- so we hope, like us, you will use World Book Day to celebrate it with your child.
