On Friday 16th September, the school will be celebrating Rhydri Book Day. This is always an extremely enjoyable event where the children are encouraged to share their love for reading and their passion for particular authors and books with others. Children are encouraged to dress as their favourite book character and, if possible, bring a copy of the book into school for the day.
To make this year’s book day even more special, we are very pleased to be welcoming the Etherington Brothers, two experienced children’s comic book writers and artists, into school. The brothers will provide workshops for junior children as well as a book signing. Further details about their work can be found at http://theetheringtonbrothers.blogspot.co.uk/. The foundation phase team are also planning a series of exciting activities for book day as well! Further information will be sent over the next few days.
Whilst, we love famous authors like Roald Dahl and JK Rowling, this year, the school wants to help pupils to discover other authors and other types of books.
To encourage the children to explore the works of the comic book writers, silver and gold class teachers will be sharing their books with classes this week. Children will also be able to order copies of their works by completing and returning the order form below. Due to orders being made online, only orders with payment will be processed.
To order books, please complete and return the form being sent home today by Friday 9th September at 3:30pm.
