Thursday 5th March is World Book Day! At Bracken Leas we are celebrating all things book related with a week of activities across the school.

On Friday we kicked off our World Book Day events with a visit to our school from Neil Arksey, children’s author. Neil conducted a whole school assembly and workshops across the school. A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all and we would like to say a big thank you to Neil for visiting us.

Share a Million Stories

From 27 February-29 March, we are supporting World Book Day’s Share A Million Stories campaign, championing the importance of sharing stories and for the chance to win £1,000 of books for our school.

Why Share a Story?

Sharing a story for just 10 minutes a day can have a lasting impact on a child’s future, and can help to create readers for life.

How can you take part?

On Monday 2nd March, your child will receive their Share A Million Stories Reading Record, for children to tick-off how many stories they’re sharing at home and at school (including their curriculum books, audio books, magazines, comics or graphic novels), which we will then add to our school total, which feeds into the live national total.

World Book Day Pyjama Day – Friday 6th March

On Friday 6th March we are having a Pyjama Day. Children may wear onesies, dressing gowns and slippers to school. However, they must also have with them coats and suitable footwear for break and lunchtime. They may also bring a teddy to school with them if they wish.

Who Am I?

Throughout this week our staff will be sharing some of their favourite books. Can you guess who they are? Play along with us at school or on Twitter, new books added every day.
