Book Week at Greythorn & Dressing Up Day – Friday 3rd March

Book Week at Greythorn

27th February – 3rd March 2017


Dear Parents/Carers,


At Greythorn we value books and the impact that reading and telling stories can have on children’s learning, especially writing. We want children to have a love for sharing books, listening to stories and creating their own stories.


To inspire and engage our children at Greythorn we are holding a ‘Book Week’ in the week of 27th February to 3rd March. During this week, there will be lots of fun activities happening

that we hope the children will enjoy.


Parents/Grandparents Reading in School

There will be opportunities for parents, grandparents and carers to come into school to read to children or hear children read. There will be timetabled slots for adults to come into school that week every morning from 9.00 – 9.30am and every afternoon at 3.00 – 3.30pm to share stories so please speak to your child’s class teacher if you are able to come in and fill in the form below. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. If you are not able to come at these times but are free at another time during that week please let the class teacher know. Please return forms or speak to the class teacher as soon as possible.


Dressing Up Day – Friday 3rd March

There will also be a dressing up day to honour World Book Day on Friday 3rd March.

Will we be asking children (and all staff!) to dress as a character from a book on the Friday.

We know that dressing up and getting into the spirit of things can be great fun for children but stressful at times for parents! There are many ways to keep it simple and cheap with the use of props and there are some great ideas on the website link:


We look forward to celebrating this week with you and your child.

Miss Pooley


Please return the form sent out on ParentPay or speak to the class teacher as soon as possible if you are able to spare some time to come in and read to or hear children read.
