As you know, World Book Day is on Thursday 3 March and the Cockenzie Learners’ Group (Pupil Council) is organising a Big Brilliant Book Swap. We are asking every child, from Nursery to P7, if they could bring in a book this week and next (before Wednesday 2 March please). Each class will have a collection point. The idea is that every child will swap their book and go home with a new one.
Please make sure that the book your child brings in is good condition and is appropriate for their age. If you have more than one book to donate then please do so (as we may have some children who do not bring in a book). We do want everyone to go home with a ‘new’ book.
In addition, the children have decided to have a ‘Potato Book Character’ competition for P1-7s on World Book Day. Choose a favourite book character and decorate/dress your potato up as this character (please do not buy anything, just use things in your house/garden). Children should bring their potato characters in on Thursday 3 March to their class. This is optional.
Your child also has been given a World Book Day token to redeem against a book in different retailers.
