World Book Day

World Book Week 2021

World Book day 2021 will be quite different this year as many of us are still learning from home. However, this will not prevent us from still having some fun with reading. 


Reading in unusual places


Your mission is to take a photo of yourself or your family reading a book in an unusual place. Don't forget to send the photo to your class teacher.


Who is the masked reader? 


Every day throughout World Book Week

(Mon 1st- Fri 5th March) a new video will be posted on our website for you to listen to a teacher read. The question is...

which teacher is it?  

At the end of the week, you need to complete the form and send it to your class teacher with your answers. 4 merits will be awarded to anyone who gets them all correct. 




World Book Day

This year for World Book Day the nursery children will took part in our ‘Bedtime Stories’ day. The children were invited to wear their pyjamas and nightgowns.

Throughout the day the adults in nursery shared stories and asked the children to choose their favourite stories to read.

Our bedtime story session was to promote the enjoyment of reading with a family member, listening and joining in with familiar stories.



World Book Week 2020

On World Book Day itself, we were very lucky to see an amazing production of 'Oliver Twist' performed for us in school. This really brought the book to life and was thoroughly enjoyed by all children from year one to year six.

Throughout the week all classes had been provided with lots of exciting opportunities to read and share books from home and school, to use books as the stimulus for their writing and to dress up as a book character on World Book Day itself. We even had an assembly led by a West End musical theatre performer, who was able to inspire the children with her love of books and portrayal of characters on the stage. The year 5 children were then able to take part in workshops on the theme of 'Oliver Twist'.
