World Book Day 4th March 2021, by Miss Flynn

Date: 3rd Mar 2021 @ 10:07am

World Book Day | World Book Day is a registered charity. Our mission is to  give every child and young person a book of their own.

World Book Day - 4th March 2021

World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. Our mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. We want to see more children with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them. Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.

Throughout the day, your child's teacher will upload activities to complete to SchoolSpider however there are also a number of free events being hosted throughout the day.

See below for further information and don't forget to send photographs in if you have dressed up!

Most importantly- keep reading!
