World Book Day takes place on Thursday 2nd 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.
For Reception to Y6, this will take place on Thursday 2nd March and we are inviting the children to come to school dressed up as any character from their favourite book. Please don’t feel the need to go out and buy an outfit for this – if you have a look on the World Book Day website, there are lots of ideas for creative costumes that make use of what you may already have at home.
Nursery will celebrate World Book Day on Monday 27th February.
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 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.
