The Mayflower Primary School

Events at Mayflower


I know that we have shared the date for World Book Day with you in several newsletters, on the website etc, but I thought it prudent to share another reminder.

We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 3rd March. Yay!

On that day, we invite all children (and staff) to dress up as BOOK CHARACTERS (not princesses, superheroes or film characters!) as we are spending the day celebrating the wonder of books and the pleasure of reading. Children will also receive a book voucher to enable them to buy a free book of their choice from partaking retailers.

(N.B. There is no charitable collection of money for this event.)

As always, we are all really looking forward to this annual event. In fact, we will be celebrating reading throughout the whole week - with a wide range of activities (although, we will only be dressing up on the Thursday.)

The following week, we will be visited by a children's author. I will share more details of this soon as there will be opportunities to purchase signed copies of his books at the end of that day. Watch this space ...
