We have had such an exciting ‘World Book Day’. All the children came dressed as a character from their favourite book. They had such a fabulous day and Princess Poppy came to visit us too!
National Book Tokens
World Book Day, in partnership with schools all over the country, distributes more than 15 million £1 World Book Day book tokens to children.
All you need to do is to take it to your local bookshop and swap it for one of ten (exclusive, new and completely free) £1 World Book Day books!
Or, if you’d prefer, you can use your book token to get £1 off any full price book instead! And if you’d rather get an audio book, that’s fine too!
So that’s £1 off any book or audio book, it’s your choice, just as long as it would normally cost at least £2.99.
The World Book Day Book Tokens are valid from Monday 27 February–Sunday 26 March 2017
Can you recognise some of the characters …
Princess Poppy arrives to find her golden ball.
Yesterday to our amazement a golden ball appeared in the reading area. We wrote a list of questions such as… How has the ball got into the classroom? Who does the ball belong to? Has the ball got a secret message inside? Is the ball a magic ball? Is the golden ball an expensive ball? Does Mrs Bottomley know about the ball?
Then today, during World Book Day Princess Poppy came into our classroom to find her golden ball and she was so happy it was safe. Princess Poppy had an argument with her dad the King because he had told her she had to marry Prince Humperdink. She didn’t want to marry him so she stormed off with her treasured golden ball, tripped and the ball fell in the dirty pond!! A frog said he would get it for her if she promised he could live at her palace, sleep in her bed and eat from her plate. Princess Poppy agreed but when he retrieved her golden ball she ran away from him too. However she dropped the ball again and the frog got it back …. he must have brought it to our classroom!!!
You will need to keep watching to find out what happens next.
