World Book Day 2020!
Come to school dressed as your favourite book character!
To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 5th March, we would like the children to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. Throughout the day, the children will take part in a range of exciting book-related activities from sharing their favourite books and reading with their book buddies, to making book marks, designing book covers and writing book reviews.
Breaking News - Author visit
We are very excited to announce that On Tuesday 17th March we will be welcoming Nicola Skinner, the author of ‘Bloom’ and the winner of ‘Best Quality Fiction’ at the North Somerset Book Awards. She will be holding an assembly for Years 4-6 followed by a question and answer session. Nicola will also be available to sign copies of her books, which will also be available to buy. More details to follow.
£1 World Book Day Tokens
On World Book Day we will be distributing the £1 book vouchers. Once you have your book token all you have to do is take it to your local book seller and swap it for one of the fifteen World Book Day books. Or, if you prefer, you can use your token to get £1 off any full price book or audio book.
We will be holding a ‘book swap’ on World Book Day. Children should bring a book (in good condition please) into school by Wednesday 4th March and they will have an opportunity to swap it for another on Thursday 5th March. We will be swapping books within pairs of classes, e.g: Year 3 and 4, so that all children will receive a book which is suitable for their age/reading level. The children really enjoyed this last year so please help us to make this another success!
Drop Everything and Read!
This is a fun activity that we will be playing in classes, whereby on a given signal (i.e a code word), all the children immediately stop what they’re doing and pick up their book for a quick read!
The theme for this year’s World Book Day is ‘Share a story’, so it would be lovely if every class could start or end the day with a ‘mystery reader’. This can be a parent, grandparent or other family member who comes to share a story with their child’s class. Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like to volunteer.
