World Book Day 2022

Today marks 25 years of World Book Day and the children have had a fantastic day celebrating it together.  As part of the celebrations, teachers have taken the children on a journey through 25 years of books (as shown below) starting from 1997 and finishing in 2022!  It has certainly been a book-filled day of adventures thoroughly enjoyed by all!
