Today is world book day. We are encouraging children to take part in this and will be marking it in a number of ways. At home you could:
- Dress as a favourite book character - can you act in role as this character?
- Try making a prop that is linked to a favourite character.
- Playing stop, drop and read through the day - ring a bell at regular intervals through the day. When it rings stop, grab a book, drop down and read.
- Choose your favourite book recreate the front cover - you could paint, draw or dress up to match the picture. Send your front cover pictures into school.
As a school we are holding a World Book Day competition to design a poster that will motivate and inspire children to read. A winner from each year group will be chosen and they will each receive a prize. You could draw, paint or collage a picture for this. The closing date to receive entries is Monday 8th March.
Why not try to get in touch with your favourite author - you can get a grown up to help you write questions, send them a picture of you dressed as a character from one of their stories or you could send them a picture based on a book that you have read. You could invite them to join us in school via zoom or Microsoft Teams in the Summer Term. It will be exciting to see just how many responses our school gets back.
And just for fun! The teachers are taking part in 'The Masked Storyteller'. Each teacher will read a short extract from their favourite book, but they will be masked. The challenge is to guess which masked teacher is who! The answers will be revealed at the end of World Book Day
