The world wouldn’t be the same without books. That’s why this week, along with schools in more than 100 different countries worldwide, we’ve been celebrating World Book Day!


At St Mary's CE Primary School, we love to encourage our pupils to read. World Book Day is a fantastic opportunity to engage children with reading and share new books with our pupils. To celebrate the occasion we welcomed children to attend school dressed as their favourite book characters. We also ran bookie break time where children were encouraged to read and share their books with their friends. Finally, we continued the theme of reading by getting the pupils to read in some fun and unusual places.


Books are a paper portal into another world. From fictional stories such as Harry Potter to historical works of philosophy like Leviathan, we believe there is a book for everyone.


Reading is not only important for learning but is also a wonderful hobby. Helping pupils become enthusiastic learners is a goal we forever strive towards at The White Horse Federation, and World Book Day is an important part of the journey.
