World Book Day takes place on March 5th.
Piercestown N.S are gearing up towards an eventful day with some classes already taking on World Book Day with great gusto.
Miss Brown and 4th class are going to dress up as one of their favourite characters from a story. This all has to be done using their own clothes from home (no expense required). Ms. Walsh is so impressed with their enthusiasm she has committed to a prize for the best costume!
5th class and Mrs Barrett will visit the infant classes to where the boys and girls will buddy up with an infant and read them a story! What a lovely idea.
Ms. Hearne’s class are taking World Book Day very seriously by emphasising reading and having only reading homework for the week to mark World Book Day.
Ms. Walsh is busy setting up a World Book Day noticeboard near the entrance of the school. Stop by and have a look at some of our favourite quotes about reading! This display will be interactive also allowing the children to write up the name of their favourite book and/or their favourite author! Vouchers to the value of €1.50 will be distributed to all children in the school to be used before the 19th March 2015.
Why not take 5 minutes with a book and a mug of coffee is you can and mark World Book Day for yourself!
In the words of Dr. Seuss “The more things that you read, the more things you will know , the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go!”
