World Book Day takes place on Thursday 3 March 2016, and we would like to invite you
to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion. As outlined on the electronic calendar, we have asked that children dress as a favourite book character and/or theme of a book. School uniform can be worn by those not keen on dressing-up. The Gomer Team looked fabulous in their mass ‘Where’s Wally’ ensemble last year! I wonder what the Gomer Team will dress up as this year?
During the day the children will share who they have dressed up as and why. In the afternoon they will work with children in their house colour from across the school. In this sessions they will produce their own ‘Micro Fiction Book.’ We are aiming to display these in the library.
World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help get them started on their reading journey, every child will receive a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day
books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at worldbookday.com/books.
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.
