World Book Day

Dear parents/carers,


Next Thursday 2nd March is World Book Day.


For the day, children can come in dressed as characters from their favourite books – if it’s a film based on a book, we’ll allow that too! Children can bring in a voluntary contribution of £1 – all donations will go to the National Literacy Trust – a great charity that aims to change lives through improving literacy amongst children and adults.


We’re also holding a photo competition called ‘Extreme Reads’ where we want to see the oddest place you can think of reading a book. Take a photo (stay safe!) and make sure we can see the cover of the book you’re reading in it. Bring it in on World Book Day. We’re going to use these photos to create a display in our library, which is in the process of undergoing a bit of a revamp. We want it to be a more welcoming, exciting place that encourages a love of reading and books.


We’ll be planning some fun activities for the day and be having a special assembly to see all your brilliant costumes.

Looking forward to it!


Kind regards,

Mr Ousby
