World Book Day


This year, we are celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 1st March 2018, and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion. World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children.

On Thursday 1st March, we would like to invite children to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. The costume can be as simple or as elaborate as you like! We would also like to invite children to bring to school their favourite book to share with their class.

If you would like to, children can donate £1 to ‘Hands around the world’ (www.hatw.org.uk ) and help send books to children just like them in Africa and India. If you have more than one child in school you can donate £1 as a family. This is optional so please don’t worry if you are unable to send in a donation.

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 www.worldbookday.com

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.
