World Book Day 2023!

By Literacy Team, in English - Tuesday, 21 February 2023

At Fairlands, we are constantly striving to learn more and gain a deeper understanding of the diversity of our community. As a Literacy team, we feel it is important that children are reflected in the books that they read. Reading a wide range of age-appropriate texts can help children to learn about different cultures, experiences and understand a character's point of view. Teachers have been asked to select a 'No Outsiders' text or poem for the week commencing 27th February.

On Thursday 2nd March, all children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book character, customise a t-shirt based on their favourite book character or book or bring along a copy of their favourite book for our 'Bookflix' interactive reading display!

As always, we strive to promote a love of reading through 'World Book Day', so teachers will be planning a range of activities throughout the week, that promote reading. We will also be hosting a special assembly, where your child's class teacher will be invited to share and recommend their favourite book. 

We look forward to sharing our World Book Day experiences with you as we blog throughout the week!
