As per the note children took home, we are planning the following activities to celebrate this day, including:

  • Dress up as a character from a book on World Book Day.
  • 'Reach For The Stars Reading Challenge' - completed in the run up to the day and then prizes will be presented on World Book Day.
  • 'Share a Story' - paired reading of favourite books at home and in school.
  • 'Disconnect Day' - on World Book Day, switch off all electrical devices at home and in school - playstations, o-boxes, iPads etc and use the day to read, write, play games, draw, colour and chat with your family.  No screen time allowed!!

After the half term break, check your child's bag for:

  • £1 'World Book Day' Token.

Happy Reading!!
