Thursday 2 March is World Book Day! As in previous years, school children in the UK and Ireland will receive a free £1 book token, which can be exchanged in all participating bookshops, for one of the specially published £1 books. The tokens can also be used towards the cost of other books (minimum price £2.99) in participating bookshops.
This year, once again for World Book Day, as the children really seem to enjoy this topic, we are going to be promoting ‘reading at bedtime’. On 2 March, we will be having a special assembly for Key Stages One and Two to celebrate World Book Day. The assembly will promote how important reading at bedtime is. To add to the excitement, we would like everyone (including Nursery and Reception) to come dressed as their favourite bedtime book character. If children cannot decide which character to dress up as, they can come to school wearing their nightwear! Please could you ensure that underwear is worn under character costumes or nightwear!
Remember, the ‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go!’ competition entries must be in school by Tuesday 28 February.
We are looking forward to a really exciting day. To find out more about World Book Day, please visit the website at www.worldbookday.com
