To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 3 March, we will be giving each child a £1 World Book Day book token that can be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day books or used against any book costing £2.99 or more. Vouchers can be used at all participating book stores listed on  Children are invited to come to school dressed as book characters.  Below is a list of what each year group is currently reading so this might help inspire ideas – it is only a suggestion; children can come dressed as whatever character they choose.

Design a National Book Token competition:  letters and templates have been sent home inviting children to design a National Book Token.  Closing date for entries is Wednesday 2nd March Letters and info can be downloaded above.
