We act with love, build our faith and grow as people

Book Week 2023

Book Week 2023 has been a busy and exciting week. Here are some of the things we have been doing as a whole school.

  • We have had visits from Bracknell Library telling us about how to borrow books and how we can use the local libraries.


  • We have all been taking part in ‘Drop Everything And Read’ at the end of the school day and the teachers and children have enjoyed listening to a story or reading independently.


  • We have had visits from 2 published authors. They have shared their books with us and we found out where they got their ideas from. We were able to ask them questions about their books and how to become an author.


  • We all had the opportunity to dress up as a character from a book for World Book Day. All the children made a great effort and the array of costumes was lovely to see. We showed off our costumes to the whole school during an assembly and lots of children were inspired to read new books and reminded of books that they hadn’t read for a while.


  • All the children have been given a Book Token to use at a local bookstore. You can swap your book token for a World Book Day book for Free. Tokens are valid from Thursday 16th February to Sunday 26th March 2023.
