World Book Day 2017


21st February 2017

Spooky World Book Day Friday 3rd March 2017

Dear Parent/Carer,


As you may be aware, National World Book Day is on 2.3.17, however Woodlea will be celebrating on Friday 3rd March 2017.


We have a fantastic day planned for the pupils, which school is running alongside Spook Teaching Ltd. The workshops are based on characters and storylines from ‘The Spooks’ series of books by Joseph Delaney


The day will involve:

  • A launch assembly at 9.05 – parents and carers are invited to this.
  • Writer’s workshops.
  • Drama activities led by qualified performers.
  • Potion making and other ‘spooky’ activities to stimulate pupils’ ideas for writing.
  • A closing assembly at 2.45 - parents and carers are invited to this.


Over the course of the day, pupils will have the opportunity to purchase a copy of ‘Spook’s Apprentice’, which has been signed by the author Joseph Delaney. The books are aimed at very confident Year Four readers and above; they will be sold for £6.00 per copy.


All pupils are being asked to come to school on Friday 3rd March dressed as their favourite spooky book character/villain. We are asking for a £2.70 donation towards the day, which must be in school by Monday 27th February 2017. If sufficient funds are not raised, the workshops will have to be cancelled.


Yours faithfully,


Mrs Hannah Whitehall

Assistant Head
