World Book Day 2023
On Thursday 2nd March we will be celebrating World Book Day. It is a day when we celebrate the children’s favourite authors, illustrators and books.
During the week we will be basing some of our activities around Lynne Chapman books. Lynne Chapman has illustrated more than 30 children's books. She works in pastels, creating humorous but beautiful drawings that bring a whole range of characters to life, and burst with fun and vibrant colour.
On Tuesday 28th February each class will have a visit from Lynne Chapman, where she will share her stories and show us how to draw as well.
World Book Day
This year for World Book Day we are inviting children to either…
Bring in a homemade artefact or a prop from their favourite book, so that we can guess which story they have chosen.
Some examples are shown below...
Or the children can bring a prop from a character from a story, so we can guess who the character is and the story from which the prop is from.
We do not expect parents/carers to go to the expense of buying a prop - the whole idea is for children to think about character/story props they could create using their imagination and items they already have at home - it gives the children an opportunity to think of all the different books they have read. It is definitely NOT necessary or in any way expected (or encouraged) for this event to cost our families money through prop buying.
