Tiger Class special World Book Day plans – for Thursday 4th March

Since today is a special day, we are “off-timetable” and have planned different activities to celebrate World Book Day!

This year’s theme is “Share a Story”, so we have lots of opportunities for you to share a story you love and listen to lots of other people doing the same. Please see below our links, tasks, and suggested timetable for the day:

Please note that the whole point of the day is for it to be fun and for children to have a chance to enjoy their stories, so all suggestions below are optional and you are not expected to complete or submit any work – although I will love to receive any photos, as always.

Start your day by dressing up as a favourite character and choosing a book to share with the class, ready for our Zoom calls. Maybe also check out the World Book Day official song with MC Grammar: https://www.worldbookday.com/mc-grammar/
