Thursday 7th March 2019 is World Book Day. One of the main aims of the day is to inspire children to enjoy books and to develop a love of reading.
To encourage this, on the day all pupils will be given a World Book Day token which can be used to receive a FREE specially produced World Book Day book or to get £1 off any book priced £2.99. Participating stores include WHSmith and Waterstones.
This year at Westhaven, pupils are invited to come into school on World Book Day dressed as a character from a book (please note this is optional – if your child would prefer to come into school in normal school uniform that is absolutely fine). We are currently raising funds to buy more non-fiction books for the school library so we are asking for a £1 donation for this.
We are also inviting pupils to bring in their favourite book to share with their English group on this day.
