Book in a Box

For the last few years Burlington Junior School have had a Book in a Box competition for World Book Day. The children can pick their favourite book and without putting the title of the book you have to be able to tell what book is in the box. Each year the entries are growing both in amounts and size. We had some wonderful creations. Some were easy to work out like the popular Harry Potter books.

In previous years, Roald Dahl has featured very heavily and there were still some entries from him, such as Witches, Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Some were much trickier! Making a strong presence this year were many titles from David Walliams, including Gangsta Granny, Ratburger, Demon Dentist and Billionaire Boy to name just a few. His books have been appearing more and more every year. The standards were very high, making judging very difficult. We had 3 winners and they received a book, an Easter egg and a winners T-shirt each as their prize. Well done to all the children who took part. Parents can view some of the entries in our foyer at school.

Remember we are also starting a book swap club in each class. If you have a book you have read and don’t want anymore then you can put it in your class swap box and take another home. This is an easy way to read books that you know your friends have enjoyed without spending any money. Once you have swapped your book, you can’t ask for it back so make sure you don’t want it anymore.

You can view photographs of the entries in the film below.
