Reading for Pleasure

World Book Day 2024

On March 7th 2024, we had the pleasure of celebrating World Book Day, incorporating our delightful wooden spoons project into the activities. The theme for this year's World Book Day was "read your way", emphasising the power and joy of reading in shaping one's own unique reading journey. Children completed Reading Rivers in class to reflect on how reading impacts every part of their day.


The wooden spoons project served as a creative tool for our students to express their love for literature and storytelling. This initiative aimed to foster a deeper connection with books and characters, allowing the children to explore their favourite stories in a hands-on and imaginative manner.


As we cherish the significance of World Book Day, it is important to remember that this celebration extends beyond the day itself. World Book Day is about igniting a passion for reading, expanding literary horizons, and nurturing a lifelong love for books in our young learners. It serves as a reminder of the magic and wonder that stories can bring into our lives.




We have made a wishlist of books for the school; we have looked at recommended reads and researched high quality texts for each year group. These are compiled into the wishlists which you can find on our school website. 


The children love hearing stories read to them throughout the school day from these boxes and beyond!
