World Book Day 2019

World Book Day Reading Homework - Thursday 28th February


In preparation for World Book Day next week children in Reception to Year 6 will this week complete a ‘Reading River’ activity as their homework task. The purpose of the task is to provide a talking point for discussions in school around the types of reading that we do in a day and the importance of reading. Teachers have completed a ‘Reading River’ that they have this week shared with their class and examples have been viewed and discussed in class.

What do we need to do as parents/carers?

Your child will bring home an A3 sheet of paper to complete the task on.

They should draw, write or stick photos of everything that they read over a 24 hour period over the weekend onto a drawn river.

It is important to include all reading such as; signs, posters, tickets, menus, web pages, newspapers, magazines etc.

To make it personal and meaningful be specific about the item read. For example, if your child has read a poster, encourage them to include the genre/type of poster (music event, football training club etc.).

We look forward to seeing your completed rivers!

World Book Day Arrangements – Thursday 7th March


This year to celebrate World Book Day we have decided to explore the theme of ‘Favourite Bedtime Stories’. On the day we will be inviting the children to attend school in their pyjamas or onesies and bring in their favourite book. During the day, all of the classes will take part in a cosy reading session. The PTA has kindly organised hot chocolate and biscuits.


Other exciting and engaging activities have also been planned for sessions in class! Keep an eye on this page for photos and updates on the event.
