World Book Day

We have been celebrating February as 'Love to Read' month with some super ideas and inspiration to encourage our children to appreciate the pleasure of books and of reading.

On Thursday 1 March 2018, all children in the Primary Years Programme (PYP) will be celebrating World Book Day by engaging in a range of fun reading and story writing activities.

For those of you who are not familiar with this wonderful initiative, this is the overall purpose:

'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.'

What to do:

  • Help your child to select their favourite book or book character
  • Help them to plan an outfit that captures the spirit of their choice (their favourite character, author or a colour that represents their book).
  • A fancy outfit is not necessary, help them to be creative - it is the celebration of the fun of books rather than having the perfect costume! (there are some fabulous ideas on the website
  • http://www.worldbookday.com/dressing-up/
  • An optional donation of 10kr will be collected and donated to Book Aid International (details on the world book day website above)

We look forward to a day of celebrating the joy books bring to our lives!
