The day ended with a reading bonanza after school in the library where teachers, staff, and families were able to read together, share their favourite stories, and swap books.

Headteacher Tracey Hart would like to thank the children, staff, and families for their time and hard work to make World Book Day such a special day.

Everybody looked tremendous in their outfits and as a self-confessed book worm, it was a real treat to see the children's enthusiasm during the day as they listened to new stories and shared old favourites.
