World Book Day 2022

Dear Parents/Carers,


This year, World Book Day falls on Thursday 3rd March.  However, across The South View Federation, we will be celebrating on Friday 4th March. World Book Day is a day set aside every year to celebrate reading, books, authors and illustrators. World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help get them started on their reading journey, every child receives a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of the ten special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books and ideas on how to share books at home at worldbookday.com/books. The books will be available to buy from Thursday 17th February.

On Friday 4th March, we are giving children the opportunity to dress up as a word of their choice as this will be linking to the book that we will be looking at across the federation. The word could be an adjective like black, stripy or adventurous or you could come dressed as a noun like a pirate or a witch. There will be prizes for the best thought out word!


Reading for pleasure is so important and to celebrate that, we are also giving the children an opportunity to take part in ‘Book Bingo’. On Thursday 17th February, your child will be given their ‘Book Bingo’ card. They will have until World Book Day on Friday 4th March to complete either a line or the whole board! They need to write the title of the book on each square as they’re completed. There will be certificates for the winners!


We look forward to seeing everyone dressed as words and taking part in a selection of exciting reading activities.

Kind regards,


Miss Sheldon & Mrs Flynn
