Book Week 2017 - Friday 1st Sept

​Book Week 2017 Escape to Everywhere
This year’s theme is Escape to Everywhere. Children can come dressed as their favour-ite book character within this theme. It’s a tricky one but these two quotes about books give us some idea and discussion points:
"Books don’t just go with you, they take you where you’ve never been"
"Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are."
After the costume parade, the whole school will enjoy a show based on the book by Leila Rudge "Gary". This book was nominated for the Childrens Book Council’s picture book award. It is a book about a pigeon unable to fly that dreams of exploring the world – until the day when he falls into an adventure of his own. This little pigeon should encourage children to look beyond limitations and embrace their differences.
We will also be raising money for the Make a Wish foundation as previous years. A gold coin donation will be collected on the day.
