Today, marks the 25th World Book Day and children, and staff, have had great fun dressing up as their favourite book characters. The teachers in each class have had an almost impossible job deciding on just one winning costume – from the most creative, to the most interesting, to ones linked to a book that they have been reading, or just because the hair was incredible!
Well done to all of the winners – and to all of the children in school as you all look fantastic. Thank you to parents and carers for your support.
World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading. It is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. The first World Book Day in the UK and Ireland took place in 1997 to encourage young people to discover the pleasure of reading.
Check back later, for a post showing the fun the children have had celebrating books and reading in each of their classes.
Article 31 – We all have the right to take part in cultural and creative activities.
If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.
