This year’s World Book Day was a fabulous opportunity to celebrate and encourage reading for pleasure in our school community. We are committed to making sure all of our pupils are enthusiastic, capable and engaged readers, so it was simply wonderful to see the range of costumes and reading experiences that the children shared.
We loved hearing from children about what their favourite stories are and why they enjoy those characters. It was great to be able to share these together over Zoom, but even more encouraging to know that through a difficult lockdown, so many of our pupils have been taking comfort from diving into the wonderful world of fiction.
Below are some of the costumes, and some children recreating their favourite book covers.
