SHIBDEN Head Primary Academy has revamped its reading areas in time for World Book Day.

The new facilities have been designed to include comfortable, inviting spaces for children to spend time solo reading as well as with other pupils to encourage them to work together and to inspire children to read more at home. This has also seen the introduction of new books for children to enjoy. This Thursday pupils at the school will dress as their favourite book characters and create a ‘book in a jar’ or a ‘book in a box’.

Sarah Thornton, head of Shibden Head Primary Academy, said: “We are putting a full school focus on the importance of reading and how it can be a fun hobby for our pupils to engage with."

TRINITY ALL SAINTS PRIMARY SCHOOL celebrated World Book Day this year using 'Tuesday,' a book by David Weisner. Children from nursery through to year 6 had a great day pretending to be detectives, interrogating the characters from the story and writing fantastic news reports about the evidence that they collected. We even had frog cakes for lunch!
