Book Week 2017
Book Week 2017
During Book Week a lot of exciting events will be taking place in school.
If you can spare any time during book week , please speak to your child’s class teacher about popping into school to listen to readers.
We will launch READATHON this week, which is a sponsored read.
The children will bring home a sponsorship card and try to get family and friends to sponsor them to read as many books as possible.
More details of the READATHON are on the letter sent home. Money raised will go to children’s hospitals across the UK.
For every £100 we raise, we will get free books worth £20 for our class libraries.
After school, all of this week, our annual Book Fayre is available for you to browse through and purchase reading materials – books, comics etc.
Your child will also be given a £1 voucher to put towards the cost of any book you would like to buy.
This year’s Book Week Photo Competition is called: ‘ Where my wellies take me’ inspired by a book written by Michael Morpurgo.
Please take a photo of your child reading whilst wearing their wellies or boots. Send the photos into school and they will be displayed.
Best photograph wins a prize.
World Book Day 2017 – Thursday 2nd March Children can come to school wearing their wellies or boots. In the afternoon,
all of the children will spend time sharing books with children from other classes. Your child can bring their favourite book to share.
If you are interested in becoming a regular reading volunteer: listening to readers and sharing books with children, please speak to Mrs Tarrington
or leave your details at the school office.
