WORLD BOOK DAY

Dear Children, Parents and Carers,

Thursday 4th March is WORLD BOOK DAY!

Sadly we can’t all be together to celebrate in our usual way, but don’t worry – we have plenty of fun activities for you to have a go at from the comfort of your home.

World Book Day is about promoting the enjoyment of reading, encouraging children (and adults) to read for pleasure and explore different types of reading materials.

Please take a look at the photo slides for a short introduction to WBD and posters informing you of some live events for all age groups that you can get involved in. Here are some of the links you might be interested in:
