World Book Day

World Book Day is a celebration! It's a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading. In fact, it's the biggest celebration of its kind and is marked in over 100 countries all over the world.

To show our support for this special event, every class will have a 'special guest' reading them an inspiring story. We would also like to encourage your child to come to school dressed as their favourite book character for a donation of £1. This donation will be put towards a project to send books to underprivileged children in Africa.

Your child will also be given a £1 book token to swap for one of ten books specially written for World Book Day or it can be used to get £1 off another book. Most bookshops around the UK will accept the tokens.

Please ensure you send your £1 donation to your child's class teacher in a sealed envelope.

Furthermore to celebrate our love of books at Gallions Mount we are going to create a display to promote reading. It would be fantastic if you could send in a photograph of your child enjoying their favourite book to include as part of this.
