Dear Parents/Carers,

World Book Day on Thursday 5th March

This year we will not be dressing up as a book character for World Book Day on 5th March 2020.

We are mindful of how stressful and costly it is to buy and make costumes for your families, which takes away from the purpose of the day to encourage reading for pleasure.

Instead, we would like the children to create a book character out of a potato, which will be a relatively cheap alternative. The children who have seen the examples love the idea and are already planning the character they wish to make.

There are numerous examples on Pinterest.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Walsh
