On Thursday we celebrated World Book Day.
This year the theme was: 'You Are a Reader’. To celebrate World Book Day, we had plenty of fun activities taking place throughout the day including:
- Inviting children to dress up as their favourite book character.
- The official World Book Day quiz.
- Designing a book token.
The aim of the day is to inspire children to develop a love of reading and to broaden their reading selections, which we know has a huge impact on personal and academic development, not to mention wellbeing.
- Children were given a £1 World Book Day voucher. - simply take your £1 book token to your nearest bookseller and swap it for a World Book Day £1 book OR get £1 off any book or audiobook costing £2.99 or more. Bookshops and supermarkets are a big part of what makes World Book Day special and thousands will be taking part in World Book Day 2022, with many putting on special events to celebrate World Book Day. Your local bookseller might be on the high street or could be a supermarket. Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco all stock the £1 books. You can find your nearest bookseller at booksaremybag.com.
Well done to all the children for their fabulous efforts throughout the day.
