National World Book Day is on Thursday 1st March. We ask children to come to school on that day dressed as their favourite book character. Please do not go to any expense; home-made outfits look just as good! On that day, the Book Fair Stall arrives in our school hall. You are more than welcome to browse and purchase any books after school. Book tokens will go home tonight and can be used at the Book Fair or at participating bookshops.
The whole school dressed as dragons to celebrate World Book Day, following our dragon theme and raising money for Book Aid International. Book Aid International is an organisation that sends books to those in Africa who have little or no access to books. In total, we raised £195.52 for this very worthy cause!
To celebrate World Book Day, author Mark Robertson spent the day in school telling stories, teaching children how to draw dragons and asking the children to share their own ideas for new creatures which he then brought to life! His visit and books inspired some fantastic writing in all year groups.
