In 2022, we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of World Book Day – with the message for all children ‘you are a reader‘!
The mission of WBD is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own through the £1 book token scheme. At Elm Grove we have been collecting book donations from our generous families and will be handing them out to pupil on Friday 4th March.
On Friday 4th March pupils are invited to dress up as their favourite book character, and there will be a small prize for the most inventive costume in each year group!
