The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading.
At Grange Lane we love to encourage reading through Read Write Inc, Reading scheme books, our library and even our Little Lending Libraries throughout school.
For World Book Day we came dressed as our favourite book characters amongst them were: Ms Trunchbull, Harry's Dinosaurs, Prince & Princesses, Superheroes, Stickman, Harry Potter, Tracy Beaker and even pirates. Thank you everyone for making a fabulous effort.
World Book Day provides children with the opportunity to have a book of their own. Using their book token given to them by their teacher, they can take their book token to a local bookseller and can use it to pick one of TEN (exclusive, new and completely free) books. Or, if they’d rather, they can use it to get £1 off any book or audio book costing over £2.99 at a participating bookshop or book club (terms and conditions apply).
