World Book Day

 

Good Afternoon.

We hope you have all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.

Next week marks a very exciting time in our school calendar, with World Book Day on, 4th March.

Sharing stories and books are so valuable as part of a child’s development.  Not only in supporting skills in Literacy but, to spark imagination and stimulate curiosity while building social skills and communication skills.

Reading stories with children has benefits for grown-ups too. The special time you spend reading together promotes bonding and helps to build your relationship with your child.

We will be marking World Book Day next week, both in school and remotely. On 4th March – Our theme of the day for all children (and staff) will be “Pyjamas all the way for St.Joseph’s World Book Day!”. Nursery- P3 are asked to come to school wearing pyjamas and P4-7 children should wear pyjamas when accessing their learning from home!

  • We will be running a Potato Book Character Competition for ALL children to take part in, including the nursery. More information to follow next week from class teachers.  Nursery-P3 will be provided with potatoes and craft materials in school while the families of our P4-7 children, may like organise buying  some potatoes in preparation.

There will be ongoing events in school and online throughout the week to get involved in.  Why don’t you share some of your ideas with us and upload them to TEAMS?

We look forward to seeing your Potato characters!

As always, children will receive a World Book Day Token that they can use at participating bookshops.  This year, it will be distributed electronically.
Take care and stay safe.

  1. Glad to see this being marked, something for kids to be excited about.

    What about keyworker kids in p4-7 who are working in school? Can they also wear pjs on this day and do they need to bring in a potato to school?

  2. For Clarity, Keyworker children in school, on World Book Day will be provided with a potato to participate in the activities. They can also wear their pyjamas.
