World Book Day 2023

World Book Day Learning and Fun

World Book Day is a registered charity which aims to change lives through a love of books and shared reading. Their mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income.

At Violet Way, we will be celebrating World Book Day 2023 in a number of ways. The learning focus in English across the school will be Fairy Tales. The daily story time will be focused on Fairy Tales and children will listen to a range of different traditional tales in class. 

The children will be reading a range of Fairy tales throughout the week and, for their English learning, they will turn themselves into their very own Fairy tale character! They will use this as inspiration for their writing.

On Thursday 2nd March (World Book Day) children and staff are invited to come to school dressed in pyjamas we will start the day with milk and biscuits and story time. ​

​The BOOK FAIR will be in the hall and open from the end of school on ​Monday 27th February throughout parents evening till 6.30pm. ​It will also be open on Wednesday 2nd March and Thursday 3rd March from 8.40am until the start of school and Wednesday from 3pm till 3.30pm​. 

​The children spoke and we listened!

The children enjoyed our competition to raise money for new books for our library and wanted to do it again this year! We listened and, for the three weeks before half term, children were able to enter into a 'Guess the Fairy Tale character' competition to raise money for new library books. 

Bedtime Stories at Violet Way

Following on from our Bedtime Story time last year, as part of our World Book Day celebrations, members of staff from school will be reading a bedtime story. Each night, we will post a video of a different member of staff reading a story for you to watch at home. The stories will be traditional tales. Which ones do you know well? Do you notice anything similar about the different stories?
