At Great Crosby, we thoroughly believe that the purpose of World Book Day is to promote a love of reading. The reason why we don’t always dress up is because sometimes this detracts from the act of reading; some parents and carers find creating or finding a costume stressful and many people end up spending money on costumes when the money could be spent on a book instead. So, with that in mind, we have included a reading challenge for your child to complete between now and World Book Day, one for EYFS and KS1, and one for KS2.
