World Book Day

World Book Day 2022

A huge thank you to all of you who took part in the 'Get Caught Reading Challenge' and to the staff who participated in 'Masked Reader'. The winning classes of the Masked Reader competition were: Jellyfish, Sea Lions and Orcas!

It was a joy to see our children share their love of reading throughout the day, completing different activities and sharing their favourite books for 'Bedtime Stories' in the afternoon.

Our pajama day collection raised £443.72 which has been donated to UNICEF.

Enjoy some videos and photos of our fantastic day!

World Book Day 2021

Thank you so much for all of you hard work and creative efforts in preparation for and

during World Book Day! It was wonderful to see the children in their masks and engaging with a wide range of creative tasks linked to books and reading.

Also, a big thank you to our ‘Mystery Readers’! It was lovely to hear such positive comments from the children about the stories you shared, so thank you for taking the time to do those recordings and join different classes for their Tutor Time.

World Book Day 2020

A big thank you to all children, parents and staff for your efforts to make World Book Day 2020 a success!

The children enjoyed a fun-filled week where they were immersed in books and reading; they were introduced to some new authors and reminded of their love for old authors. Every class chose Anthony Browne book to use as their focus for RIC. The books created some wonderful outcomes in the form of drama and art too.

The creative efforts that went in the children's 'Hats off to Books' hats were fantastic. Congratulations to our winners of the competition!
