Monty the star of the books will be visiting EYFS / KS1 and LKS2 with his owner and author of the book MT Sanders on Wednesday 6th March 2019.
There will be an opportunity to hear the stories, ask lots of questions about Monty or about being an author, and even to buy the book signed and with Monty’s Pawtagraph. Order forms will be sent out in EYFS/ KS1 and LKS2 next Wednesday following Mark’s visit.
Please send your child to school this week with their favourite story book. During Book Week, there will be opportunities to ‘Share a Story’ and the children will be asked to read their story book to a partner and discuss favourite parts etc. Please record names in personal copies of books and remind children to pass books to class teachers so they can be stored safely in the classroom. Books should be in school from Monday 4th March and will be sent home on Friday 8th March.
Finally, don’t forget World Book Day next Thursday 7th March. Children are invited to come into school dressed as their favourite book character. Each class will take part in a catwalk and a winner from each class will be announced. Winners will receive a prize and a certificate.
The children will also receive a “Your World Book Day” book cover template. This is a competition, so get creative! The deadline is Monday 11th March. 4 lucky winners will receive a prize.
