World Book Day - Now on Friday 9th March

World Book Day – Friday 9th March 2018

This year we will be celebrating World Book day by inviting the children to come to school dressed as one of their favourite book characters.

Every class will be learning about a favourite author and making simple “props” in class. Class teachers will be sending out ideas for costumes linked to class authors over the next few days, but your children are welcome to dress up as any character from any book or simply wear their own clothes for the day.

We are also repeating our very successful “Book Plate” competition and this year there will be a winner from every year group. The children are invited to design a bookplate linked to their class author. The winners will be awarded a free book of their choice from the school bookshop and their designs will be made into bookplates to be used throughout the coming year. 

We've included some photos from last year to inspire you......
