This Thursday, along with children in more than 100 different countries around the world, we’re celebrating the 23rd annual World Book Day!
Books are a key part of everyone’s education. However, with the internet becoming an increasingly common learning resource, books risk being marginalised. At Tregoze Primary School, we still recognise the importance of books in helping children to learn, develop, and discover new worlds. World Book Day is an amazing opportunity for us to help our pupils understand what reading has to offer.
We are running a " Book in a Jar" competition. The children have been asked to represent a book with artefacts in a jar. We have had lots of entries - ranging from Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to J K Rowling's Harry Potter. Click the gallery below to see some of the great entries!
The staff will also be entertaining the children with their own version of The Tiger Who came to Tea. It's sure to be a really fun event!
Teachers are swapping classes to read books to new year groups and there will be a variety of book related learning in every classroom.
An excited Mrs Keen said: "At Tregoze we work hard to create a rich learning environment to promote books - reading is always celebrated in our school and it's good to have a special day when we can all love books!"
Developing a passion for reading opens up a world of endless possibilities to our children. Every different book is unique and there are books to suit and challenge everyone. Whether a six-year-old wants to know more about their favourite dinosaur or a 15-year-old wants to get lost in a story of adventure, there is always a book that is perfect for them.
Our celebrations promote the underlying message that reading is not only important for learning, but is also a hugely enriching hobby. Helping pupils become lifelong learners is a key value of The White Horse Federation and its schools, and we want our World Book Day celebrations to encourage all our pupils to catch on to the reading bug.
