World Book Day

We will be celebrating World Book Day on Friday 8th March this year.  The children will be given their £1 book token on that day.

Below is a list of recommended reads for your child’s year group.

This year we would like the children to dress up as a character from their class’ chosen book or theme:

Field Mice




Julia Donaldson Book Characters

Julia Donaldson
Book Characters

The Day the Crayons Quit

Mr Men/Little Miss stories




Pine Martens



Horrible Histories

The Dark by Lemony Snicket

David Walliams Book Characters

Sky Song by
Abi Elphinstone

Traditional Tales and Nursery Rhymes

We would also like the children to take part in the ‘Book Potato Challenge’.  For fun we would like the children to have a go at making their favourite book character (from any book not just their class’ chosen one) out of a potato and decorate this in any way they chose.



We will have prizes for the best decorated potato at FS/KS1 and KS2.  Please bring the finished potato into school on Friday 8th March.

Thank you for your continued support!  Please see your child’s class teacher if you have any questions.
