Book week is an annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading in our school. The main aim is to encourage the children to explore the pleasure of books and reading by organising events to support their interest in books.

An author or an illustrator of children’s books is invited in to the school to speak with all classes about their work.

Competitions such as Design a Book Cover, Make a Bookmark and a Book Quiz are held during the week.

A firm favourite of both staff and pupils is Dress Up as Your Favourite Book Character Day.

During this week classes are encouraged to Drop Everything And Read. (D.E.A.R time 10 minutes every day after lunch).

Children go on Literacy walks with their teachers. First classes visit and join the library. While there, they get a tour of the library and the wonderful librarian reads them a story.
