This year, World Book Day is took place on Thursday 2 March 2023 and the emphasis was on making it YOUR World Book Day. Since it was first celebrated in the UK and Ireland over 25 years ago, the day has grown to become an essential calendar fixture for schools, settings and communities.
It provides a fantastic opportunity to focus on reading for pleasure, supporting children’s autonomy in book choice, and embedding a habit of reading that brings a wide range of benefits. This year our focus for Book Week was Non- Fiction texts.
Pupils read non fiction books, answered true and false questions, researched animals and dressed up as some really amazing creatures big and small. It was the most enjouable yet.
