Celebrating World Book Day! Thursday 1st March
World Book Day is a celebration!
It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
On 1st March Peak School will be celebrating with the rest of the world!
We have a whole host of activities lined up for students in the Library and throughout the school on that day. This year, all our events will be held on the one day, so below is an outline of activities and what you need to remember.
Character Dress Up Day
We will have a costume parade first thing in the morning where students can show off their creativity and flair!
Library Open House
Come and check out our amazing book collection, sign up for your very own Library Card, and ask us about how the Library works at Peak School.
It is important for us to support every Peak student in their reading journey so this is your opportunity to talk to us about your child's reading, their interests and anything you would like to discuss about their library book choices.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday morning or afternoon!

The alarm at Peak School is going to sound.
Fire drill? Lock-down?
No! It's a full-on reading smackdown!
All students will stop what they are doing and read a book for 10 minutes. Playing the glockenspiel with Ms. Engelman? Drop it and grab a book. Papier maché in the art room? Drop it and read a book. Dribbling skills on the football pitch with Mr. Erwin? Stop, drop and read that book!
Our Author Visits
This helps us target more authors and plan better presentations!
We've already hosted Chris Haughton, and Stuart Reid and there are more before the end of the school year.
He also came to the Year 3 classes who participated in a writing workshop to coincide with their How We Express Ourselves unit of inquiry.

On 8th March we will host Sonia Leong, a leading Manga artist and presenter. Her visits to schools are inspirational and help to motivate students to look at literature through the art of Manga, which is accessible and extremely popular with all our students.
We aim to hold two presentations and workshops for some year groups. We are very excited to host someone from this genre to help children gain some understanding of the process that goes into creating these popular books.
