Thursday 2nd March 2017 is World Book Day
World Book Day is a day set aside every year to celebrate reading, books, authors and illustrators. It’s marked in more than 100 countries around the world and will be celebrated for the 20th time in 2017.
In school, World Book Day will be a part of a whole week focusing on Literacy. The children will take part in a variety of fun activities related to books, reading and writing. On Thursday 2nd March the children are invited to dress up as their favourite book characters. Find out more about World Book Day online at www.worldbookday.com. Here you’ll find lots of fun, cool stuff including competitions and games and ideas on sharing books at home.
Libraries across the UK celebrate World Book Day with a huge range of events and activities. You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day by reading together regularly and a library if you are not yet members – it’s FREE to join!.
Children are never too young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous. We hope, like us, you will use World Book Day to celebrate it by sharing a book (or two!) with your child.
Let’s Have Lots Of Fun!

We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to read this letter with regard to the procedures we will follow if severe weather is expected.
FIRSTLY: Please DO NOT phone the school to ask if it is closed. Previous experience has shown that this significantly impacts on our reception and prevents us from answering your calls or dealing with any other enquiries.
LOCAL RADIO STATIONS: These will be informed as early as possible and they will broadcast regular updates. We advise that you listen to these stations at regular intervals. You can also check the radio stations websites for school closures.
WEBSITE: The school website will be updated with a message informing you if school is CLOSED. Our website address is: www.princealbert.bham.sch.uk
TEXT MESSAGE: You will also receive a text message informing you if school is closed. However, we can only do this if your contact details are up to date. If you are in doubt or have recently changed your details, please fill in the form on the reverse and return it to the main office as soon as possible.
SEVERE WEATHER DURING THE SCHOOL DAY: Again, PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL, if the decision is taken during the school day to close due to severe weather, you will be contacted by TEXT and failing this we will telephone you using the contact numbers you have supplied.
Please understand that the school will not automatically close if it is snowing and children will be expected to attend school as normal.
Thank you for your on-going support and co-operation in this matter.
