World Book Day - £1 Books

Hi Everyone,

World Book Day - £1 Books

Each year, for World Book Day, children of school age (Reception - Year 6) are given a £1 voucher which they can use at retailers such as Waterstones and WH Smith, in exchange for either one of the £1 World Book Day books or they can use it to save £1 on a different book of their choice. Unfortunately, on many occasions, when we reach the shops, most of the £1 books have already been sold and so the children miss out on owning their own book. However, this year, I have been in contact with WH Smith and we have the opportunity to pre-order the £1 books. This means that each child is able to pre-order and select which book they would like using the Microsoft Form link The school would then exchange the voucher on the child's behalf and instead of coming home with a voucher, your child will come home with their very own book.

In order for us to take advantage of this, we must receive the orders from you by Thursday 1st February 2024.

On the World Book Day website, they have all the books on offer to us and when you click on each one, it will provide some information about the book and a short video from the author. Please take some time to look through the books and help your child decide which book they would like in exchange for the £1 voucher.

If we haven't received an order from you by Thursday 1st February, we will presume that you do not wish to pre-order and so your child will receive a voucher on the day instead. Further information about World Book Day will be sent out soon.

This is a fabulous opportunity and I am sure lots of you will take up the opportunity to pre-order these books.
