Dear Parents and Carers,
World Book Day at Kelvin Grove is on Friday 3rd March this year. This letter is to inform you about the learning and activities planned to mark this fun and important event.
On World Book Day, children will be invited to dress up if they want to. They can either dress up as a character from their favourite book, or they could bring in an accessory which is linked to their favourite book – for example bringing in a wand for the book Room on the Broom. Children could simply bring in their favourite book to talk about.
As we do every year, older children will visit a class of younger children to share a favourite book together. This has always been a favourite part of the day and will, as always, be captured in pictures on our website.
We are organising a Book Swap which will take place during the school day. Every child in the school will be invited to bring in a book they have enjoyed from home that they are happy to give away. In return they will be able to choose a book to swap it with that they haven’t read before. We will give you the details of this after half term.
Get Caught Reading
During the week of World Book Day a photograph will be posted on the website of a member of staff hidden behind what they are reading. Children will have to guess which member of staff it is. We would like to encourage parents and carers to send in, tweet, email etc photographs of your child/children reading one of their favourite books at home in a comfy spot.
We will mark the day with World Book Day assemblies.
