World Book Day 2017

On Thursday 2nd March 2017 we celebrated World Book Day. All the children and staff across school came to school dressed as some of their favourite book characters.

‘World Book Day’ celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help get them started on their reading journey, every child received a £1 ‘World Book Day’ book token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 ‘World Book Day’ books, or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at worldbookday.com/books.   Please help your child to use it on or around ‘World Book Day’ by visiting your local bookshop (if you need help finding one, visit www.booksellers.org.uk and look for the book shop search tab).

You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond ‘World Book Day’ by reading together regularly and joining your local library if you are not yet members. For more information about ‘World Book Day’ and ideas on sharing books at home, visit worldbookday.com.

Children are never too young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous so we hope, like us, you will use ‘World Book Day’ to celebrate it with your child.

Take a peek at some of our photographs from the day. Can you spot any of your favourite book characters?
