World Book Day – Thursday 5th March

WBD2015_blue_leftdownAs part of World Book Day celebrations, Graham James Primary Academy are putting together a timetable of fun filled book-based activities that will last the whole week. Each individual class will be doing different activities and crafts linked to all aspects of reading.

On Monday 2nd March we are holding a ‘bedtime story’ session straight after school until 4.15pm. The children can bring in pyjamas/onesies and slippers to change into after school ready for the story-telling (Teddy bears optional!). A snack and drink will be provided.

On Thursday 5th March, we are inviting the whole school, pupils and staff, to dress up as their favourite ‘book’ character. Please feel free to be as imaginative as you can.

In addition, a children’s author (Robin Price – I am Spartipuss, Boudicat) is spending the day with us on Friday 6th March, sharing his expertise, and running exciting and interactive writing workshops for the children.

Your child will have brought home a £1.00 Book Token to celebrate World Book Day.  The token can be used from 2nd March to the 29th March (inclusive). During these dates, the token can be used as part payment for a book costing at least £2.99 or as total payment for one of the specially produced books listed on the back of the token. The voucher can also be used at the School Book Fair which will be in the school hall from 5th March to the 10th March 2015 from 3.15pm to 4.00pm.

Our school milk scheme
Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.“How much does it cost?”
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.
