World Book Day is an annual event that celebrates children’s books and reading. More information can be found at www.worldbookday.com.
We are holding a book swap to promote children’s love of books and reading as part of our celebrations of this important day. As love of reading is an important part of the new curriculum and they will be putting into practice lots of skills we have been teaching them this is a valuable experience. Best of all as the children will be swapping books they’ve already read it’s free!
You can start to bring in books for the Book Swap from Monday 29th February. There will be a box in the classroom for you to put them in. This will be clearly labelled “Book Swap”. Please help you child(ren) to ensure the books go into the correct box and that they write their name and number of books on the form so we know who to issue tickets to.
Children will be able to swap up to five books during their session. If you have any extra books you would like to donate that would be amazing. Larger donations can be left in the school office or brought to Mr. Parsloe in the library,
If we have any leftover books at the end of the day we will hold a book sale. The books will cost 20p each and the money raised will go to the Readathon charity. Look out for details of this year’s Readathon challenge which is being launched soon.
