World Book Day

World Book Day Friday 3rd March 2023


We will be celebrating this great event on Friday 3rd March by inviting the children (and adults) to come dressed as their favourite book character. We would also love it if they could bring in a favourite book to share with their class.



Book swap- during break time on WBD (Friday 3rd March), there will be an opportunity for children to swap a pre-loved book and pick up a ‘new’ one to take home and enjoy.  If your child would like to take part then they will need to make sure they have a book, which is in good condition, and one that they are happy to give away!

Book sale – during lunch break on Wednesday and Friday there will be a small book sale that will help raise money to stock our library. If your child would like to buy one to take home, please send them in with change in a purse or envelope that is clearly labelled with their name. Books will be sold for 20p or 50p.

£1 Books – each year the generous people at WBD team up with budding authors and produce books for a £1.  Waterstones in Alton have very kindly agreed that in exchange for our tokens they will provide a book for each child. This means all the children will come home with a shiny new book on that day!

Competition - This year we are running a ‘Book in a Jar’ competition where children will be invited to think about how a favourite book, could be represented in a simple jar! There are some examples above for you to have a look at, it’s really easy! Find any clear jar, carefully put your chosen items (that represent your book) into your jar, select quotes from your book and perhaps even some clues about its characters or setting!  Please make sure that any ‘Book in a Jar’ competition entry is clearly labelled with the book that is being represented, your child’s full name and class.

All entries must be in school by Friday 3rd March for judging.  The Reading Team will short list their favourite jars and, alongside Miss Price, pick their winners. These will be announced during Celebration assembly.

Good luck!

We can’t wait to share a booktastic day with your all!
