On Wednesday 21st February, each child took home a £1 book token. This token can be used at the Book Fair to get £1 off a book. Alternatively, in participating book shops, you will find the new World Book Day  £1 books which you could get with your token!

To celebrate World Book Day, on Friday 8th March, everyone is invited to come to school dressed as a book character!

Please donate £1 on the day which will help fund more books for our school. You can put your £1 in the bucket on the school gate or pay online through School Gateway.

Back by popular demand! Who's that behind the mask?! The Masked Reader returns to St Clement Danes!

Each day of Book Week, classes will be emailed a video of a 'masked reader' sharing a story. The classes need to guess, from the clues in the video, which member of our school staff is hiding behind the mask! The class or classes that can guess the most masked readers, will win books from the book fair for their classroom Book Corners. The children will find out who are behind the masks in assembly on Monday 11th March!

Don't forget that this week, and for the rest of the school year, St Clement Danes' BIG READ continues. Find out more about how you can get involved here: The Big Read
