World Book Day Thursday 7th March
To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 7th March we will have a Book Character Day. This is
a non-uniform day where everyone is invited to school dressed as a book character.
Polar Express – Pyjamas and a dressing gown
Room on the Broom – Witches hat and a purple dress.
Charlie Bucket – Blue jumper, grey school trouser and a bar of chocolate
Matilda – blue dress with a red ribbon in hair and a few books.
Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs – normal cloths and a plastic bucket of dinosaur toys.
One of the dalmations from 101 Dalmations – white t-shirt and a black marker to draw spots on it.
Angelina Ballerina – A dancing outfit, tutu, leotard.
Please look at the website worldbookday.com (Primary resources –dressing up ideas). There are some great ideas for
popular characters such as Gangster Granny, Willy Wonka, The BFG, The Gruffalo and Harry Potter.) We’re looking
forward to a fun day.
Each child will receive a £1 book token, which can be redeemed at various book sellers such as Waterstones, WH
Smith. Alternatively, they can be used for part payment for a book of their choice. This year there are ten £1 books
available from a range of authors including Peter Bently, Lauren Child, Sibeal Pounder and Alex T Smith. Our book
fair will be in school in March, where the children can also use their voucher as part payment for a book.
