World Book Day & The Travelling Book Fair

World Book Day is coming, Thursday 1st March.

 

There are various events planned during next week, in school time, further details of these will be shared over the coming days.

 

We are also inviting children to dress up as their favourite book character and bring that book in to school to share with their friends in class in a Book Blitz.  They will have 1 minute to tell their friend about their favourite book before moving on to tell another friend about it within their class.  There is a suggested donation of £1 in return for dressing up.  All money raised will be used to purchase new books for the school.

 

Please remember, that dressing up is entirely optional.  You can find lots of easy ideas about how to dress up here:
