We are excited to share with you our plans for Literacy Week which begins on March 2nd and includes World Book Day which is on Thursday March 5th.
This year the whole school will be spending the week enjoying the very beautiful book The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, written and illustrated by the talented Charlie Mackesy. If you would like to buy your child their own copy to enjoy, it is currently available online and in bookshops.
The Scholastic Book Fair will also arrive on World Book day - this is an ideal opportunity for you and your child to stock up on new books. You will also be able to redeem your child’s World Book Day voucher by using it to get £1 off any book priced £3 or more.
We understand that World Book Day can be an expensive time for some families with children asking for costumes to dress up for the day so this year we have again come up with a more cost effective, and potentially more exciting option.
We would like you to provide your child with a large potato for World Book Day and we will do the rest! On World Book Day, your child will get the chance to decorate their potato so that it looks like their chosen book character. The only limit will be their imagination!
For your child to join in with this, we will need them to bring in their potato on Tuesday 3rd March and start thinking about which character they would like to choose. If you have any craft supplies at home that you would like to share with us, please feel free to do so as well.
We would love for a few of you to come in and help so please let your child’s class teacher know if you are available.
Continued thanks for all your support.
