World book day!

February 26, 2020

Dear parents/carers,

This year, World Book Day is on Thursday 5th March 2020. We will be reading a range of different poems, all based on the style of nonsense poetry. The children will be exploring nonsense poetry from famous author and poet Michael Rosen as well as other well-known short poems. Your child will devise their own nonsense poem by the end of the day which can be available to read with you at home should you wish.

Similarly to last year, your child may wish to dress up on World Book Day linked to a book of their choice. This is entirely optional but please note: it is not a general non-school uniform day so if your child chooses not to dress up for World Book Day they should wear their school uniform as usual.

Your child will be coming home with homework linked to World Book Day. They will be asked to recommend a book of their choice to be purchased for our school library. On WBD, each class will take a vote on the book recommendations and choose one book which will be purchased for the library; each book purchased will have a note inside with details of the class it was recommended by and reasons for the recommendation.

At the end of the school day, there will be a Big Booky Cake Sale, which has been organised by the Young Governors, on the playground. All profits from the sale will be sent to a charity who the World Book Day organisers work alongside to provide children from less fortunate circumstances books which they can read for pleasure. Please do feel free to get creative book baking at home if you would like to contribute to the bake sale. All cakes made need to have a connection to a book in some way.

If you have any questions about World Book Day, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

Kind regards,

Sammy Swainston

English Leader
