World Book Day - Thursday 3rd March 2022

On Thursday, 3rd March, your child is invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. As this event is all about celebrating books themselves, please help your child to choose a character they know well from a book as opposed to a movie or TV show. We do not expect parents/carers to buy a costume for this purpose; there are many costumes that can be put together with everyday clothes. These include characters from Matilda, The Boy in the Dress, Gangsta Granny, The Adventures of TinTin, Angelina Ballerina, Where’s Wally, Paddington Bear and Mr Bump (and other Mr Men characters). Each class will be celebrating the world of books with many book related activities in class. Parents are reminded that children do not need to bring in money to wear their outfits.

The children will receive their book tokens on World Book Day. Book tokens can only be redeemed in bookstores. You can find your local participating book seller at https://www.booksellers.org.uk/wbd
