World Book Day is on the 5th March. To celebrate, we will be holding our usual dressing up opportunity. Come dressed as your favourite book or favourite book character. There will be prizes for the best homemade costumes. This will also link in with an event taking place in Street Library on the day (see below). Dressing up is optional – if you would like to dress up but don’t have a costume, please consider wearing your pyjamas – all book characters have to sleep! We are also holding a potato decorating competition. Details were sent out before the half term break.
This year, as part of our World Book Day celebrations, we would like you to ‘Dress a Potato’. Simply decorate a potato as a favourite book character of yours and bring it into your class teacher on World Book Day. It could be painted, dressed up in a costume you have made for it or even have your character as part of a small scene you have created. Please send any potatoes in on 5th. They will need to have a label with name/ year group and character. We will display them in the hall.
Message from Street Library:
“We would like to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. We would love to see local children in the library that day. If they are wearing costumes we would be delighted to see them. We will be dressed up! From 3- 5 p.m. we will be providing drinks and cookies. The children will be able to draw a book character or have a colouring sheet which we will display in the library. We hope that children will pop in and see us. It will be fun!”
