World Book Day 2020

World Book Day Thursday 5th March

 

Today was World Book Day, the theme this year is ‘Share a Million Stories’ which emphasises the importance of reading for just ten minutes a day.

We have celebrated World Book Day by asking all of the children to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. We  also asked children to bring in a book for a ‘book swap’. All children, who bought a book in to swap, should be coming home with a different book that they have chosen, appropriate for their age. All classes have been taking part in a ‘spell-a-thon’ and book-themed activities. Every child was also be given a book token that they can use, to put towards the cost of a new book, or to purchase one of this years’ World Book Day £1 books.

DEAR

Please remember that during this week we are also holding a DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) week throughout the school. Each day, class teachers will stop children during their daily activities and ask the children to read for fifteen minutes (staff will also be taking part too!). Children were allowed to read books from the school library, reading areas in classrooms, books they take home to read, and they were also allowed to bring books in from home for the event as well.
