World Book Day


Thursday 6th March is World Book Day and Longview Primary will be celebrating it in style!

World Book Day is an annual celebration designed by UNESCO . School’s and libraries throughout more than 100 countries celebrate authors, illustrators, storytellers and above all else, reading.

World book day aims to show children the great pleasure that can be found in reading and tries to encourage them to read more often. This will be done through a range of activities with a reading based focus.

Longview’s pupils will also be celebrating the event’s 17th anniversary by dressing up as some of their favourite book characters. Each class has a  theme and with stories such as Harry Potter, Where’s Wally? and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it’s bound to produce some fantastically fun results! (pictures will follow soon)
