Scholastic Book Fair Takeover

We are looking forward to holding a Scholastic Book Fair in school from Thursday 8th March to Wednesday 15th March. This will be a super opportunity to for children to buy a book as well as a chance for us to restock our class libraries.

 Over the next four weeks, a team of children from Class 3 will be running a project called Book Fair Takeover. Our aim is to teach pupils about the world of work by letting them plan and run our Book Fair, which will take place between 8th March and 14th March

We’re looking for buzzing business minds, magical maths whizzes, dazzling design gurus and friendly front-of-house specialists!

 Pupils are encouraged to demonstrate responsibility, show initiative and use problem-solving skills by each taking on a specific ‘job’ within the running and planning of the Book Fair. They will be given job profiles over the coming weeks – from accountants to display specialists, managers to browsing supervisors – and we will invite them to apply for the jobs that interest them by submitting an application form or a CV and cover letter by Monday 5th February

 We hope that you will take the time to come along to the Book Fair to view the books on offer and to see the pupils’ Takeover at work! The Book Fair will be open after school between 8th March and 14th March and each class will also have a chance to browse the shelves during school time. The Book Fair is a great way for us to earn free books and resources, so the more the Book Fair Takeover team sells, the more free books for Dishforth CE Primary.

 Thank you for your support. If you or your child would like to discuss the Book Fair Takeover or upcoming Book Fair, please speak to our Book Fair Organiser, Mrs Brooks.
