Book Week 2022
We have a plethora of exciting activities planned for Book Week Monday 28th February to Friday 4th March 2022. The theme for the week is villains. For example to celebrate Book Week, Year 3 will be creating their favourite book character(s) with a loo roll or kitchen roll. Following our Twitter feed for lots of examples of Book Week activity or see the photo gallery below.
Dressing up on Friday 4th March
Children can dress up as their favourite book characters - or favourite villainous characters - on Friday 4th March 2022.
Visit by Rap Poet Karl Nova - Tuesday 1st March
We are particularly thrilled that rap poet Karl Nova has been invited into school on Tuesday 1st March 2022 to inspire the students about poetry, performance, reading, writing and books, and to help develop their skills and enthusiasm about poetry. Books will be available to purchase on the day and will be signed and personalised. Reading a wide variety of texts is vitally important for children, and on this occasion the school will also benefit from the book sales, so please send in payments on or before the day. You can order and pay for Karl Nova’s books online by clicking here.
Scholastic Book Fair
During the week commencing 7th March 2022 we are holding a Scholastic Book Fair. The children love choosing a book at the fair, which is an important fundraiser for the school. Our last fair raised over £700, which we spent on class reading books and library books.
All children will see the books in school and will create and take home a book wish list and an order form should you wish to purchase any of the books.
Parents and accompanied children will also be welcome to view and select books in the school hall 3.30-4.30pm with Lower School parents invited in on Monday 7th March and Upper school on Friday 11th March.
Ordering details : Parents coming into school can pay cash or take an order form home to order online. Children in school can bring an envelope with cash and pay for a book in school. Envelopes containing cash must be left with the office staff. Please place all other orders online. All ordering details are on the attached invitation. The full range of books can be viewed by clicking here. Please order using the book fair order form, so the school receives the commission. Enquiries to Mrs Bruen, Librarian, email: email@example.com
Book Week 2021
The children dressed up (if they wished) as a Superhero, online AND in school for World Book Day on 4th March 2021. Many fun activities happened during the week linked to books and reading all with the theme SUPERHEROES. The masked reader where our staff have recorded snippets from well-known books and the children tried to guess which member of staff it is. Children were also able to enter our amazing 'toilet roll' book character competition. See some images of the 2021 book week below.
