World Book Day
Next Thursday 7 March, Reigate Priory will be participating in World Book Day!
We are really looking forward to being part of this global event and have planned a day of special activities to bring our whole school community together in appreciation of the brilliance of books and the pleasures their stories can bring.
To add a bit of magic to the day, we ask that children come into school dressed as a favourite book character and bring either that character’s book or another favourite book into school with them. As usual, we will have our traditional costume parade to admire everyone's creations and there will be an opportunity for children to talk about and share their favourite story.
We ask that children bring in a minimum contribution of £1 to dress up with all of the money raised going towards new reading resources for our School Library.
Children will hopefully come home extra enthused to read or explore new tales and stories but will also have a special World Book Day Book Token – so be sure to check bags!
We look forward to welcoming some favourite characters into our school for the day and watch out for those teachers and members of staff who I am sure will not miss the opportunity to dress-up!
