World Book Day
World Book Day @Longroyde
Thursday 11th March
Dear Parents, Carers and Children
On Thursday 11th March, we will once again be celebrating World Book Day. We have decided to move the event to this day so that all our children can join in with this celebration of books and reading back at school.
This year we’ve had to make some changes to our usual WBD celebrations to ensure that we can all stay as safe as possible. We won’t be asking children to come dressed up this year but if this is something that you enjoy don’t worry as there will be other events coming up in the future.
A number of exciting activities to promote reading have been planned to happen in classrooms and I’m sure that this will still be the same magical day that it always is! A few notable events include:
Masked Reader ‘Who’s that behind the Mask?’
On our school VLE you will find video clips of staff at Longroyde reading short stories and poems...wearing
a mask! Can you guess who it is? Listen to the end to find out!
Lockdown has been the perfect time to curl up with a good book and let it take you away to a far-away land! But where have you being doing your reading? Take a photo of yourself reading a book and upload it to the competition file on the VLE. There will be a prize for the most inventive place or creative den that you have found to read your book.
Usborne Book representative (and Longroyde Mum) Lisa, will again be bringing in a wide selection of these fantastic books to sell. This year Lisa’s book fair is going virtual! Lisa will be holding a demonstration of some of her books via zoom after school for you to enjoy from your own home. The ID and password for the zoom meeting will be sent out prior to this. The children will be given a £1.00 book voucher in school which can be used towards the payment of their book. Alternatively this can be exchanged for one of the specially produced £1 books stocked in many supermarkets and bookshops.
We look forward to celebrating this exciting day! Yours sincerely
Mrs Geddes Reading Leader
