World Book Day 2017

It's World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March and it is celebrating it's 20th Birthday. It is an opportunity to appreciate books and the enjoyment of reading in a fun and focussed way. Our theme for the day, in fact the week, is Alice in Wonderland the fantastic book written by Lewis Carroll. Children and staff are invited to dress up as one of the characters from the story. Hopefully there will be many Alices, cheshire cats, white rabbits and Mad Hatters.
A Scholastic Book Fayre will be held in the Junior Hall after school on Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Monday 6th of March. Opening times will be 3.10-3.45. This will give everyone a chance to browse through the book selection and hopefully buy one. Every child will be given a £1 voucher which will enable them to have a £1 discount from any book priced at £2.99 or more.

I am also running  a design a bookmark competition for all year groups. Teachers have been given blank bookmarks this morning for everyone to colour, draw or desgin something fantastic. The closing date is Thursday 2nd March. The competition will be judged Friday morning and the winners will be collected to choose their prize from the book fayre.

There  are also 10 specially written and printed books just for World Book Day. These are available form bookshops and some supermakets at just £1. If you take your voucher along with and you choose one of these books it will be free. Definitely worth having a look at.

However you are celebrating World Book Day have fun.
