World Book Day

Thursday 07 March 2024

World Book Day 2024 has been one to remember for Year 2! We’ve had a fun-filled day of celebration, raising the profile of books and reading.

The children arrived at school dressed to the nines as their favourite book characters, ready to share their books with the class. We started the day by sharing our books with one another and creating character profiles.

After a breathtaking costume parade in the hall, teachers swapped classes to read their favourite books. Year 2 were lucky to welcome Mrs Kendrew who read Tadpole’s Promise.

After playtime, we joined schools around the country for a special webinar with John Patrick Green, author and illustrator of the ‘Investigators’ series of graphic novels. The children enjoyed following along with John as he drew investigator Mango – the results were outstanding. We’ve got some future superstar illustrators in our midst!

Thanks to all our adults for your support in celebrating World Book Day. Raising the profile of books and reading for pleasure is hugely important and we can’t do it without your help.

Help at home by continuing to support us on our reading journey!
