World Book Day

26th February 2021
World Book Day will be celebrated by the Shanklea community on Friday 5th March 2021. We have lots of fun and exciting activities planned to celebrate the joy of reading.
Children at home and at school are encouraged to dress up as a book character. We would love to see photos of everyone at home please.
We are also challenging children to take part in a special Shanklea Masked Reader competition where children have to work out (or guess) which masked member of staff is reading the story.
The World Book Day organisation is also running a competition. They say:
We can’t wait to see schools and families sharing stories in celebration of reading together and World Book Day 2021. We know how precious time with your book is and we also know there are lots of brilliant ways you can enjoy books so we’re inviting everyone to join in with our SHOW YOUR SHARES competition.
A story share could be: reading at home with your family, reading in your favourite nook, reading in an unusual location, sharing a story with your pet, reading a book dressed as your favourite character, and more!
EVERY WEEK during World Book Day month (four in total), we’ll award prizes for the best story shares with a different theme each week.
THE COMPETITION runs from 22nd February 2021 for 4 weeks.
A World Book Day Voucher will be sent with this newsletter. Paper tokens may be collected from the school office if people prefer.
