Book Week is an annual highlight in the King’s calendar and, since last year’s event was curtailed by the lockdown, next week’s celebration of reading promises to be better than ever.
World Book Day itself is on Thursday, March 3 and we are looking forward to seeing the fantastic costumes on display in Willow Lodge and Junior School as pupils dress up as their favourite characters.
Junior School pupils will also enjoy a virtual visit by author Hannah Gold on Thursday, and they will be voting for the all-important KSC Book Awards throughout the week.
In Willow Lodge, the whole day will be dedicated to books, and the children are taking part in a book swap so that they can share their favourite stories with their friends. Children can bring books to school at the beginning of the week for the big swap that will take place on Thursday.
In Senior School, the fun will last all week with a number of events planned by Mrs Harding and her pupil librarians:
