World Book Day

World Book Day 2024


World Book Day will be taking place on Thursday 7th March 2024.


This annual celebration of authors, illustrators, books and the joy of reading is one of the highlights of our year at Westdale! 


World Book Day provides a fantastic opportunity to focus on reading for pleasure, supporting children's autonomy in book choice, and embedding a habit of reading that brings a wide range of benefits.



Six Elements - One Reading Superpower


The evidence base shows there are 6 building elements which support a child to read for pleasure:


  1. Being read to regularly
  2. Having books at home and at school
  3. Having a choice in what to read
  4. Finding time to read
  5. Having trusted help to find a book
  6. Making reading FUN!

These 6 elements shape and guide everything World Book Day does.
