his year, IVJS will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March 2019. We would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion. We are giving the children the chance to come into school dressed as their favourite literary character for the day on the day.
World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help encourage them on their reading journey, every child has received a £1 World Book Day Book Token that will be exchanged for one of the ten special £1 World Book Day books. The children will choose their books in school and will receive their books from school on the day.
Nurseries, schools and libraries across the UK celebrate World Book Day with a huge range of events and activities. You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day by reading together regularly, joining your local library if you are not yet members and even making the most of our school’s online Bug Club.
For more information about World Book Day and ideas on sharing books at home, visit www.worldbookday.com. Children are never too young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous—so we hope, like us, you will use World Book Day to celebrate it with your child.
This is where we'll post all school news and updates. If you require paper copies of any information on our website then please contact Mrs Goggin in our school reception.
