World Book Day

World Book Day 2018

For World Book Day 2018, we asked the children to choose our theme. After votes in every class, the children chose the theme of 'Crime-Fighters'. Each class then suggested titles and authors for our chosen theme. We also asked our trusty book supplier to recommend titles and authors in order to widen the range of our reading material, including both fiction and non-fiction titles. We purchased 75 new titles and these were displayed on a central reading display. Inside each of the books we put a 'recommendations' slip. We encouraged children to share their recommendation in order to help other children to decide what to read next. After the launch on World Book Day the display was nearly empty - during the first week our new books had 122 'reads' alone!

Other World Book Day events included a very successful book swap, a second hand book sale, the launch of our annual Reading Challenge (with a crime-fighting theme of course!) and the launch of our World Book Day competition to inspire a range of writing around the crime-fighting theme.

We were very impressed with children's creative costumes on World Book Day 2018, inspired by the theme of crime-fighters. Can you guess the book titles from the costumes the children are wearing in the photographs below?

World Book Day 2017

We chose 'Magic' as our theme for World Book Day 2017. We purchased lots of new fiction and non fiction titles, including poetry, that all had the theme of magic. These were displayed on a central reading display. Inside each of the books we put a 'recommendations' slip. We encouraged children to share their recommendation in order to help other children to decide what to read next. After the launch on World Book Day the display was nearly empty - over the course of four weeks, the new titles were read over 270 times!
