World Book Day 2018

Dear parents/carers,

World Book Day takes place 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.

This year, we are encouraging children to dress up as characters from their current whole class text. Parts of the costumes will be made during a prior Learning for Life lesson to reduce the workload for parents and bring the characters they have become engrossed with to life.

The class texts are:

Nursery: Each Peach Pear Plum- Allan Ahlberg

Reception: Supertato- Sue Hendra

Year 1: Jack and the Beanstalk- Mara Alperin

Year 2: Traction Man- Mini Grey

Year 3: Stone Age Boy- Satoshi Kitamura

Year 4: The Iron Man- Ted Hughes

Year 5: How to Train Your Dragon- Cressida Cowell

Year 6: The Wise Fool: Fables from the Islamic World- Shahrukh Husain

World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children.

To help get them started on their reading journey, every child will receive a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at worldbookday.com/books. Your child’s token can be used at most large bookshops and major supermarkets from Monday 26th February to Sunday 25th March.

We look forward to seeing everyone dressed up and celebrating reading!

Yours sincerely,

Miss A. Fanning

Librarian
