11th February 2020
On Thursday 4th March we will be celebrating World Book Day at Blanford Mere Primary. This year will obviously be a very different experience to previous years, but we are still excited to share our love of reading across the school.
As part of our celebrations we would like your child to dress in a costume of a character from their favourite book, or in their pyjamas to celebrate bed time stories. We recognise that the opportunities to purchase/create costumes is limited at the moment, so wanted to provide different options. This will apply to children currently attending school, and children who are taking part in remote education. If you are learning from home, please send your teacher some pictures via Teams so we can celebrate together.
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, we are pleased to announce that we will be releasing some story-telling videos where Mrs Miller will read some of her favourite books. These will be available to watch via links shared over Teams and School Life. We hope this will ignite a passion for the children to want to read books at home. For optional home learning tasks, please visit the World Book website at www.worldbookday.com.
As an alternative to the normal paper vouchers, World Book Day are offering eVouchers so that you can still purchase your £1 books. More details will be sent about this closer to the day.
We are looking forward to a wonderful day!
