Sunday Times Prep School of the Year 2013-14

World Book Day - Thursday 1st.March

Our girls will be coming to school in their pyjamas (trainers and a coat for playtime will be needed as well, thank you!) with a cushion, or soft toy, to snuggle down with and get comfy for a good read at some point in the school day. The girls are also asked to bring in their favourite book, or one they are currently enjoying. We are confident this will really promote a love of reading and generate some lively discussion amongst all the girls, different year groups as well, as they are given time to share and chat about various books.

This year, for the first time,  there will be an interactive online element to the day with 'The Biggest Book Show on Earth' happening at www.worldbookday.com. This will showcase a festival of some of the best children's writers and illustrators including Julia Donaldson, Nick Sharratt, Jacqueline Wilson, Axel Scheffler and Lydia Monks, amongst many others, being interviewed about their work, why they write or draw, and reading extracts from their books. It should all be great fun. Watch this space for photos and an update on the day as it unfolds later this week...
