This year’s World Book Day (WBD) is on Thursday 5th March.
As usual we will be celebrating this event at St John’s and are asking everyone (children and staff) to dress up as their favourite book character on this day. As always we love to see homemade outfits for this occasion and so please do not feel that you need to buy anything special but use your creative skills to turn items that you already have around the house into an outfit! Perhaps this could be a half term activity…
Children will be given their free £1 World Book day book token during the week of World Book Day and we are hoping that they will be given the opportunity to visit a bookshop with their class and to spend this token on one of the special books produced for the event. The children will also be taking part in special activities related to WBD in their classrooms and we will be welcoming the bargain book fair back to school on Tuesday 3rd March.
We look forward to a fun packed day of books, reading and dressing up!
