Book Character Day

World Book Day takes place in two weeks and we will be celebrating our love of reading on Friday 8th March when children will have the chance to dress as their favourite book character and there will be a prize for the best-judged character outfit.


Character Dress Up

At 9:05, the children will parade around the track (weather permitting). In Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 there will be prizes for the best costume. In Years 3-6, children will have the opportunity to take part in book day activities linked to their character and other books. They will also watch videos of authors and how they create their characters and get their ideas for their stories. There will be an opportunity for a child from each year group to win a book voucher for the book fair.


Book at Bedtime

Book at bedtime will take place on Thursday 7th March 5:30pm – 6:00pm for Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3. The children may come in their PJs and dressing gowns. They will be given a drink while they listen to the teachers read a story. Parents are invited to stay for tea/coffee and biscuits.


Scholastic Book Fair

The book fair will arrive on 20th March where you can come along and buy a book using your book day voucher. This will give children £1 off any book purchase. Please support the book fair as it is also an opportunity for the school to acquire new books from Scholastic for free to put into the library.


Book Swap

At playtimes, children can take part in a book swap. For every book they bring in, they will receive a ticket to choose another book on the book stall. Books can come in from Friday 1st March until Thursday 7th March. Please make sure that all books are clean and in good condition.


Get Caught Reading in an Unusual Place

Take a picture of your child reading in an unusual place. The most unusual will win a book token to spend at the book fair. Send your photos to: or tag us on Facebook!


The Masked Reader

Let’s try something new! This year we will be posting videos of staff reading on Facebook. All you have to do is guess who is reading from their favourite book.


Please keep your eyes peeled on the website and Facebook for the Masked Reader videos all throughout World Book Week. 


Can you guess who's behind the mask?! 

And finally ….

We have recently had a new roof on the library which has meant a little refurb. On Thursday 7th and Friday 8th March please feel free to drop in and take a look. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful space.
