World Book Day & Book Fair

St Joseph’s
World Book Day
Friday 2nd March 2018

On Friday 2nd March , St Joseph’s World Book Day,  the children are encouraged to DRESS UP as their favourite book character. There will be a COMPETITION for the best costumes with prizes of book vouchers to be used at our Book Fair.

To celebrate World Book Day we have invited one of our local bookshops, Pickled Pepper Books, to organise a Book Fair. With lots of exciting new children’s books to browse and buy there’s sure to be a book for everyone.

When: Wednesday 28th February – Friday 2nd March 2018

Times: 8:40 – 9:00am and 3:00 – 3:45pm

Where: The School Library

If you are unable to attend the Book Fair your child can select their own book(s) during the school day. Please provide the money in an envelope clearly marked with their name and class and give it to your child or the school office.

Every child will also receive a  World Book Day £1 Book Token which can be exchanged at the Book Fair for one of the TEN new and exclusive World Book Day books.

Don’t forget that every book you buy can help towards FREE BOOKS for our school library!

We will also be joining the nationwide event to enjoy the pleasures of reading and SHARE A STORY on World Book Day, giving out stickers to all the children who participate. Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their outcome and its fun for all involved. You can read together anywhere and everywhere, from breakfast to bedtime! Please join-in!
