World Book Day is a celebration! It's a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it's a celebration of reading. In fact, it's the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
With this in mind, Bythams Primary School was not going to let last week’s freezing weather stop us from celebrating our World book Day. The children and staff looked amazing, dressed up as their favourite book character or snuggled up in their onesies, ready for a spot of bedtime reading. The staff and children then shared their favourite books with their friends and discussed why reading is so important and so much fun!
Also, Amelia Blake in Year 5 very kindly presented the school with a beautiful book entitled “The Lost Words” It is a beautiful book celebrating the disappearing words of nature, from acorn to wren, conker to dandelion.
World Book Day at Bythams was great fun and it is always lovely to see the children and teachers reading and sharing their love of books!
