World Book Day Thursday March 3rd
05 Feb 2016
March sees World Day and Witham will again be celebrating this event. Last year’s focus was on dressing up as characters from books and was a veritable visual feast, in contrast this year we are taking a more literal approach with a day of celebrating the text itself. Children and staff will be encouraged to spend some time during the day when they “down tools” and pick up a book.
There are some super activities on the WBD website – please look if you can. Notable features are the celebration of the centenary that national treasure, Roald Dahl, as well a super chance to write your own story on line “helped” by some well-known writers including Cressida Cowell, Charlie Higson and David Almond - see http://storytelling.worldbookday.com for this option.
