World Book Day in the OWN Trust Schools 2024

OWN Trust Schools celebrated World Book Day on 7th March 2024. Discover the exciting and imaginative ways each school marked the occasion.

Woodston Primary School

Woodston Primary School had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day on 7th March 2024. There were lots of exciting activities happening to develop the children's love of reading and promote the importance of reading.

Children excitedly discussed their fancy dress choices and explained to their peers why they had chosen their particular character and why it was special to them. Every class read and enjoyed a range of different texts and even took part in a teacher swap! The children eagerly awaited the arrival of a different teacher from another class in the school who came and shared a favourite story with them.

There was a lovely buzz of excitement and enthusiasm throughout the school, and we are so pleased that the children enjoyed the opportunity to read for pleasure throughout the day.


Nene Valley Primary School

Children at Nene Valley Primary School enjoyed a fabulous World Book Day, dressing up, writing stories, drinking hot chocolate, and visiting the book fair!

It was wonderful to have the focus on reading and enjoying books. The children had numerous opportunities to relish reading and other activities linked to books. 

There were also some very imaginative entries for the 'book in a box' competition.

Orton Wistow Primary School

Orton Wistow Primary School enjoyed the World Book Day celebrations on 7th March 2024. Children and staff dressed up as their favourite book characters, with an imaginative and varied array of costumes.


Mrs Campling, the OWPS librarian, organised a series of activities throughout the week with a CSI book-themed investigation for the classes to solve. The children had great fun being detectives, solving the clues, and finding out what had been stolen, and from whom. 


As part of the World Book Day celebrations, children were invited to come in after school to experience Bedtime Stories. The children enjoyed a hot chocolate and a biscuit whilst the teachers read to them.
