World Book Day Activities - March 2019

Posted on March 01, 2019

Once again, we will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March 2019. There will be various activities on throughout the day celebrating the love of reading.


This year we would like each child to bring in an unwanted book for the ‘Big Book Swap’. Each child, who brings in an unwanted book, will receive a token. All books collected will be displayed in the assembly hall and pupils can ‘spend’ their token and pick a book.


We are also holding a whole school competition to give away 5 x £5 vouchers to spend at the book fair which begins on Thursday 21st March 2019.


All the children have to do to be in with a chance of winning, is come to school dressed as a book character on Thursday 7th March. The best 5 costumes will receive a £5 voucher. We will also accept World Book Day tokens, which are worth £1, as part payment for a book at the book fair (1 token per person).


We look forward to seeing all the character costumes on Thursday!
