World Book Day 2023
THURSDAY MARCH 2ND
Our emphasis for World Book Day this year is READING FOR PLEASURE.
‘Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. We want to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them’
Children came to school dressed as a character from their favourite book. They talked in their class about why they enjoy this character so much.
The mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
World Book Day £1 vouchers were sent home with the children this week.
