World Book Day Thursday, 3rd March

To celebrate this year’s 25 years of World Book Day, The Greater Horseshoe School will once again be holding a dress-up day.

We invite all our young people to come to school dressed up as their favourite book character on Thursday, 3rd March.  All we ask is that your child’s costume is practical and appropriate for school.

Other activities include:

  • ‘Doors as book jackets’ competition where groups of young people choose a classroom door to decorate.
  • ‘Writes of Passage’ where our young people share the title and author of the book that means the world to them with the rest of the school by filling out a post-it on a noticeboard.
  • Shared reading where members of staff share a book with our young people.
  • Cake sale to raise money for the World Book Day charity.

On the day, each child is to bring £1 for the good cause and extra money to purchase a cake or two.  Each child will also receive a £1 book token to spend on a book of their choice.

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”

Stephen King
