World Book Day at GBPA

World Book Day


Date sent: 1st March 2021, 9:00am


Great Barford C of E Primary Academy


Dear Parents and carers,


As you know, here at Great Barford, we love to celebrate world book day. This year world book day is officially on Thursday 4th March and although we will be sending some fun activities home and of course, sending you a world book day £1 book token, we would like to celebrate in school when we are all together. I would also suggest going onto the world book day website for things you could do at home.


Therefore, as a school, we will be celebrating world book day on Thursday 18th March 2021. We have planned fun activities for the children to participate in throughout the day including, book quizzes, identifying the Masked Reader, a school staff surprise, a competition where prizes are to be won, and of course…dressing up as your favourite book character.


Children will be encouraged to dress as their favourite book character, this does not have to be a bought costume of any sorts but can be home-made or thrown together on the day. As this has been a hard start to the year, we want to encourage the children to have fun and get lost in a world of books for the day.


We appreciate all your support and are looking forward to being together again.


Kind regards,

Mrs E Humphrey

Head of English
