Dear Parents and Carers,
WORLD BOOK WEEK: MONDAY 1ST MARCH – FRIDAY 5TH MARCH
KG LOVES READING!
Welcome to World Book Week! Here are a few reminders about the exciting things we have planned both on Seesaw and in school this week.
KS1 – Watch a special World Book Week assembly with Miss Magee here:
KS2 – Watch a special World Book Week assembly with Miss Oppong here:
£1 World Book Day tokens
Book tokens are available in hard copies of packs this week; there are also spares at the office. Children in school will be given one by their bubble teacher. A link will be sent via email if you are not coming into school to collect a physical pack this week and wish to download an online version of the token instead.
Every day, two different members of Kelvin Grove staff will be reading a story to the children but in disguise for our ‘Masked Reader’ challenge! These videos will be uploaded to Seesaw in the morning and children will have the opportunity to guess which member of staff they think is behind the mask! The reveal video will be on Seesaw each day at 3pm. We hope the children enjoy the stories and guessing who has been reading to them.
As previously mentioned, due to the current restrictions of lockdown, dressing up as your favourite book character is optional this year. Children in school who wish to dress up are invited to do so on World Book Day itself: Thursday 4 March. Children learning at home are invited to come dressed up on the day of their class zoom. Dates and times will be communicated via text by individual year group teachers.
Some alternative suggestions to dressing up in full costume include:
– Make an accessory for your character using recycled materials from home
– Make a book character by ‘dressing up’ a household item like a wooden spoon or potato
Activities on Seesaw
Each year group has planned an exciting array of activities to celebrate World Book Week on Seesaw. This includes the daily photo challenge where the children are encouraged to upload a photograph of themselves reading in a range of different settings across the week. We look forward to seeing these photographs on Seesaw.
Finally, thank you to everyone who contributed to our whole school book swap. If your child is looking for a new book to read, please speak to their class teacher.
We hope the children enjoy all the wonderful activities we have planned for World Book Week and the final week of remote learning. We look forward to welcoming all children back into school on 8th March.
Thank you for your continued support.
Achievement Lead, Upper School
