World Book Day - Thursday 7th March 2024

World Book Day Celebrations

Dear Parent/Carer,


World Book Day takes place on Thursday 7th March and we hope you’ll join us to celebrate across the school.    We are celebrating World Book Day this year in school because we support the charity's mission to change lives through a love of books and reading.


We will be celebrating this in school through a variety of different activities.  Children will take part in ‘Drop Everything and Read’ and they will have books read to them by some familiar guest readers!


Dressing up or bringing books into school is a big part of World Book Day celebrations, and is something that children and families particularly enjoy. We are inviting children to dress up this World Book Day or bring in one of their favourite books to share with the class (please make sure this is clearly labelled) as it’s an exciting way for children to get book recommendations from each other. The book choice is key – even if it’s just a prop or a clue make sure your child is recommending something to read with their costume. We encourage you to use things you already have at home to make a creative costume


You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm and love of reading over the next week by discussing with your child the books that they enjoy or even ones you enjoyed when you were younger. 


Children will be bringing home a £1 book token, which entitles you to one free World Book Day book at participating retailers. To find out more visit


You can check out the World Book Day Family Hub for more things to do at home.


We’re very much looking forward to celebrating World Book Day, which could not happen without the support of parents and carers – thank you.


We look forward to a fantastic World Book Day!


Yours sincerely,

Miss L. Daly
