World Book Day – Thursday 7th March 2019


4th March 2019




Dear Parents and Carers,


It is World Book Day on Thursday 7th March.  We will be dressing up to mark the occasion, and this year, we are asking everybody to dress up as book character of their choice.  We hope that this provides you with lots of room for you and your children to be as creative as possible!


The theme for World Book Day this year is ‘Sharing Stories’ so we would like to invite all parents in to read some stories to small groups of children from 9:00 – 9:15am.  These stories will be taken from our class libraries.  Please wait outside your child’s class before being invited in to read with the children.


We will also be handing out to each child their very own £1 World Book Day token, which can be used to purchase any of the 12 £1 World Book Day texts, or to be used as part payment for another text of your child’s choice. I have included for you the 12 World Book Day texts for your information below:




As always, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support for us at Parkside School.


Yours sincerely


Miss Wood
