World Book Day 2022

4 March 2022
World Book Day 2022

This week, along with schools in more than 100 different countries around the world, we’ve been celebrating the 25th annual World Book Day!

At Gorse Hill, we don’t think there’s almost anything more important than reading as part of a good education. World Book Day is an amazing opportunity for us to share new books with our pupils.

For a spin on the traditional dressing up for World Book Day, we invited our pupils to come to school dressed as an adjective. There were some fantastic outfits!

We also got up to different activities in each class, including an assembly with local authors who talked about on why they love to read.

Developing a reading habit opens 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 develop their knowledge of history, there is always a book that is perfect for them.

Reading is not only important for learning, but is also a wonderful hobby. Helping pupils become lifelong learners is an important goal for The White Horse Federation and its schools, and we want our World Book Day celebrations to encourage all our pupils to get into the habit of opening up a book.
