Finally our World Book Day has arrived. We gave out World Book Day tokens earlier in the week to build excitement and enable children to choose their book as soon as possible. It is lovely to hear so many children already talking about the book they have chosen.
Today we will have lots of book related activities throughout school – maybe some extended DEAR time too. Children and staff may choose to come dressed as a book character or in pyjamas for a book at bedtime theme.
Due to the postponing of our book day last week, it now coincides with our poetry performance. Children will gather in the hall to perform their poem and listen to the other classes. I have heard super things about the poetry – but still don’t know what poem each class is planning to do!
This also provides a great opportunity for the children to see all the costumes in school.
