Look out for Horrid Henry, Tracey Beaker, The BFG and many more unusual students arriving at Danetree Junior School, West Ewell, Epsom, Surrey on Friday 2 March 2012, when pupils are being invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book character to celebrate this year’s World Book Day.
Literacy Subject Leader Sarah Mayes said: “In return for dressing up we are asking the children to donate a book that is either new or one that they no longer read, to put in each classroom’s book corners. We have many avid readers in the school and by recycling books it will give everyone even more choice of new reading material!”
Every child in the school will receive a £1 book voucher on World Book Day which can be spent at a number of book sellers and online.
Visit World Book Day for more information on how to register:
World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 15th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 1st March children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. That’s why we will be sending schools (including those nurseries and secondary schools that have specially registered to participate), packs of Book Tokens and age-ranged World Book Day Resource Packs (age-ranged into Nursery/Pre-School, Primary and Secondary) full of ideas and activities, display material and more information about how to get involved in World Book Day.
