World Book Day – Thursday 5 March World Book Day – Thursday 5 March As a school, we believe that reading is important as it helps you to discover new things by enabling you to educate yourself in any area of life you are interested in and to do your own research and thinking. Reading opens the mind and imagination and the creative side of a person. We will be celebrating World Book Day 2020 by encouraging the children to share a ‘Million Stories’ and they are invited to attend school dressed in their PJs so that we can have one big bedtime story. There will also be a reading challenge set for the week, which involves children reading at certain points during the day. We will be encouraging children to read for 15 minutes 3 times a day, listen to a story once a day and read at home every evening. If your child achieves this, they get a stamp on their ‘Reading Challenge’ card and at the end of the week will be entered into a prize draw! There is no charge for this event.
