World Book Day – Thursday 5th March 2020

This year World Book Day takes place on Thursday 5th March 2020.  We would like the children to come to school dressed as a character from a book.  Some examples could be:  Cat in the Hat, The BFG, Cinderella, Harry Potter and many more.

A further activity that we would like the children to do is as follows:

  • Please can EYFS and KS1 children decorate a large potato as a book character and bring it into school on World Book Day.
  • Please can KS2 children design a book in a jar and bring it in on World Book Day.

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

To help them on their reading journey, every child receives a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of ten special Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more.
