World Book Day takes place next month, and we are going to make the most of this occasion by having a special day in school on Thursday 5th March 2020. As in previous years, the children are welcome to dress up as a book character for the day, should they so wish.
World 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 £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at http://www.worldbookday.com/ . Your child’s token will be given out on the day.
As part of the build up to celebrating ‘World Book Day 2020’, on Wednesday 26th February 2020 we are having a very special children’s author visit from Ian Macdonald, who has written many children’s books. He will be working with all our children in workshops and providing us with a captivating day capturing the children’s imagination and love of reading. Also as part of his visit, your children will be able to purchase one of his books and he will be staying after school to sign his books. Find out more about him on his website http://www.authorinschools.co.uk/
You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day by reading together regularly and joining your local library, if you are not yet members. For more information about World Book Day and ideas on sharing books at home, visit the above website.
Reading for pleasure is an important part of the National Curriculum, and is something we always encourage at school. Children are never too 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. Remember, ten minutes per day makes a huge difference to your child’s learning.
