During assembly on Friday 28th February, Lucas and Delilah, our Year 3 school councillors, gave the children some information about the history of World book Day.
Delilah- “World Book Day is a day when we celebrate authors, illustrators, books and most importantly, reading! This is the 23rd year there’s been a World Book day and this year we are celebrating on the 5th March. World Book Day is celebrated in over 100 countries all over the world.”
Lucas- “To celebrate World Book Day we are dressing up as some of our favorite book characters. The main aim of World Book Day is to encourage us to explore the pleasures of books and that is why we are given tokens. You can take your book token to a local bookseller and pick one of TEN (exclusive, new and completely free) books or get £1 off any book or audio book.”
This year we are collecting for Water Aid and Alina and Oliver, our Year 4 school councillors, did some research about the charity and Alina produced a wonderful poster. Their findings and poster were shared with the school so that everyone knew where their £1 donation was going.
Thank you for your hard work school councillors.
