So here at Leonard Stanley Primary, we’d like to promote reading for pleasure by celebrating World Book Day in school on Thursday 2nd March. Children will be taking part in various fun book-themed activities throughout the day and cosy, treat-filled reading sessions. There are ideas for home too – see
https://www.worldbookday.com/ for more details.
We have decided to have a ‘Bedtime Stories’ theme this year. To make the day extra special, we would like to encourage children to dress in their cosiest pyjamas to celebrate the day. Please can they bring a copy of their favourite book into school too.
All children will be given a book token this week, which will enable them to claim a World Book Day book for FREE in participating shops, so look out for these in book bags.
We will also be holding a Bedtime Stories Photo Challenge. We would like every child to send in a photograph of them enjoying a bedtime story at home. The class with the most entries will win a special prize! Please email one photograph per child, with your child’s full name and year group, to
email@example.com by 3:15pm on Tuesday 28th February.
Thank you for your ongoing support in helping to encourage our children to become avid lifelong readers.
