Book Week this year will take place during the week beginning Monday 26th February 2018.
Monday 26th February will begin with a brilliant performance of “The Wind in the Willows” brought to the school by Pendle Productions.
On Wednesday 28th February 2018 the school will have its first day of the book fair and we would like to see as many people buying books over the week as all the books purchased will help raise money for the school to buy new books with. The book fair will be on every night after school ending on Tuesday 6th March 2018.
As part of our drive to maintain, promote and engage pupil interest in reading, World Book Day takes place on Friday 2nd March 2018, and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion.
World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help get them started on their reading journey, every child receives a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at worldbookday.com/books.
This year our theme is local heroes from classic literature and have chosen “Robin Hood”. We invite the children to dress up as a character from the book these may include: Robin Hood, Little John, Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, Prince John or King Richard to name just a few!
