World Book Day March 7th 2024

The children came to school dressed as their favourite character and enjoyed a range of activities relating to reading in school on this day. 

World Book Day’s work is based on the evidence of what encourages children to read for pleasure. This tells us there are 6 elements which support a child to read for pleasure:

  • Being read to regularly
  • Access to books at home
  • The ability for children to choose what they want to read
  • Having trusted adults and peers sharing and recommending books
  • The reading experience being enjoyable
  • Designated time to read
Please see the recommended reading lists for suggested books to share with your child.
