World Book Day - Thursday 4th March 2021

 

Today is World Book Day! This is a day where we celebrate reading books that we know and love, as well as finding out about different books that we might not have read before.  Today is all about fun and reading so perhaps you'd like to do the following activities: 

  • Build your own cosy reading den in your house.  Fill it with comfy cushions, lots of books and maybe some of your teddy bears/toys that you could read stories too. 
  • Find your favourite book in your house, can you draw the front cover of the book? Find out who the author and illustrator are.
  • Ask a grown-up what THEIR favourite book is - can they tell you the names of the characters and why it is their favourite book?
  • Explore the free e-book library on the Oxford Owl website: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/free-ebooks/ 
  • Choose a free audiobook and listen to a story: https://www.worldbookday.com/world-of-stories/
  • Choose a couple of these super books that you can listen to and watch here: https://www.worldbookday.com/share-a-story-corner/
Accessing online learning through TEAMS: In your child's reading record there should be a sticker with their login details for TEAMS and Microsoft Office (Outlook). The notifications for online sessions will be sent to your child's email address to follow the link.  If you have misplaced your child's login details or are having any other difficulties accessing TEAMS please contact the school office. Thank you.
enlightenedWe'd love to see all of the wonderful work that you have been doing at home!  You can send photos of your lovely work and activities to h.condliffe200@shottonprimary.co.uk
