World Book Day Wednesday 9th March 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

This year we are celebrating World Book Day on Wednesday 9th March (which is different to the national date!). The theme for our school is going to be ‘Our Class Author’. As we have not been able to celebrate together for a few years, we are going to make sure the children really enjoy this year’s World Book Day!

One of the best parts of World Book Day is when the children dress up as characters from their favourite books. It would be great if this year the children’s costumes wear one of the characters from books written by their class author.

Your child’s class author is:

Rec Nick Sharratt 

Rec Trish Cooke

Y1 Julia Donaldson

Y1 Shirley Hughes

Y2 Atinuke

Y2 Judith Kerr

Y3 Joseph Coelho

Y3 Ken Max

Y4 Benjamin Zephaniah

Y4 Jacqueline Wilson

Y5 Onjali Q Raúf

Y5 Polly Ho-Yen

Y6 David Almond

Y6 Malorie Blackman

We are really looking forward to seeing who walks into school on Thursday 9th March!

In addition, on Friday 18th of March Comic Relief the children are encouraged to join schools across the UK in a dressing-up day to remember – whether it’s as Superman, Wonder Woman, a superhero of your own creation, or a local hero in your community. Children can also dress in red!

Thank you for your support,

Ms Wootten  - English Lead
