World Book Day

2022 marks the 26th anniversary of World Book Day. The message this year for children is ‘you are a reader!’

We are going to use this day to promote reading for pleasure and children will take part in a range of activities for World Book Day.


On this day, we are inviting children and staff to come to school dressed as a book character or in their own clothes for a suggested £1 donation. Money raised will be used to purchase new books for our children to read.


We are going to take part in a whole school ‘Drop Everything and Read’ session and we are asking the children to bring in their favourite book to read for this. It will be a great opportunity for our pupils to share the books they love to read and inspire their friends to maybe try a new book or author.


Before school, we will be setting up tables on the yard for an adult book swap. This will send out a positive message that everyone in our community reads. If you would like to participate, please bring a book to swap for another.


Children will also bring home their World Book Day token. This token can either be used for one of the £1 World Book Day books or to get a £1 off any full priced book instead. The token is valid from Thursday 16th February to Sunday 26th March 2023.
