World Book Day 2022


Dear Parents and Carers,


World Book Day takes place on Thursday 3rd March, and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion. World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading. We would also like to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, on the same day. Throughout the day, we have a range of Harry Potter themed activities for the children to take part in and enjoy.


For Reception – Y6, this will take place on Thursday 3rd March and we are inviting the children to dress up as a Harry Potter character. Please don’t feel the need to go out and buy an outfit for this – your child could come into school wearing a red, blue, yellow or green tie and/or a black piece of material or even a bin bag as a cape! They could also wear a Halloween costume if they already have one at home.


Nursery will celebrate World Book Day by holding a witches/wizards themed day on Monday 28th February. They may dress up as witches or wizards if they wish.


Nurseries, schools and libraries across the UK celebrate World Book Day with a huge range of events and activities. Your child will also receive a £1 book token – sponsored by National Book Tokens. 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 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.


Best wishes


Anna Cvijetic
