World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading. The meaning behind it is to encourage young people to discover the pleasure of reading.
We want to say thank you to all the parents that took the time, came to school and read to our students. It was a lovely experience and it meant so much for us to have you at our school and share your love of reading with us.
Year 1 students celebrated World Book Day in a few different ways. They had parents come in to read stories in different languages, they made their own book marks and had a book scavenger hunt. Students enjoyed special story times so much, they wish every week would be a book week!
In Year 2, students are already working really hard to improve their reading, but even when you can already read you still enjoy other people reading to you. Parents were happy to come to school and read to Year 2 students and students listened in awe to all the amazing books that the parents read to them.
Year 4 decided to share their favourite stories from around the world, as a way to celebrate World Book Day. They invited their parents to come and share their favourite stories and it was a lot of fun. Students also had the chance to share their own favourite stories as well. It was certainly a special time. A time to celebrate all things books and share our love of reading.
Year 4 also decided that they would celebrate both the English block and Women's International Day by researching women that are famous for their writing. They learnt about Olga Takarczuk, Enid Blyton and many other very interesting women.
World Book Day was a huge success in Year 5 as well. They also welcomed parent readers in class to celebrate. The children enjoyed the stories very much!
