World Book Day 2020 takes place on Thursday 5th March 2020, and I would like to invite you to join us in making this a special occasion for the children in our school. World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books, especially to children, and aims to help children start their own reading journey by giving them a £1 World Book Day Book Token. The token can be exchanged for one of the TEN special £1 World Book Day books or can be used to get a £1 discount off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books that are appropriate for your child on the WBD website (worldbookday.com/books). Children will be bringing these vouchers home on or around World Book Day so look out for them in their bags!! The tokens are valid from 27th February to 29th March.
On World Book Day
To help make the day memorable, we are asking children to come to school dressed as a character from a book or, if they would prefer, they can design and wear a t-shirt representing their favourite book character/ book. If you would like some simple, fun ideas I recommend checking out the official website’s dressing up ideas https://www.worldbookday.com/dressing-up-ideas-2019/.
We would also like all children to bring their favourite book to school for the day, so they can tell their friends about it and also have the opportunity to read/share it in our ‘SSR’ session. The whole day will be themed around books and children will participate in lots of exciting activities to celebrate this special day.
You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day by reading together regularly and joining your local library if you are not yet members. Children are never too young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous—so we hope, like us, you will use World Book Day to celebrate it with your child.
