#WeAreOne: World Book Day

Celebrating World Book Day

Bringing favourite bedtime stories to the daytime

Every year, pupils across our Trust enjoy dressing up not just for fun on World Book Day, but to raise awareness about the importance of having a love for reading.

This year, we’re encouraging children within our primary schools to dress up in their pyjamas and bring their cuddly friend (for the young ones), as well as their favourite book for World Book Day.

Understanding the importance of reading for positive wellbeing

Young people in secondary schools experience a lot of pressure, especially around deadlines and exam seasons.

Within secondary schools across the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, we’re encouraging young people and staff to promote the importance of reading for wellbeing on World Book Day.

Telling our on stories: short story competition

At the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, we’re looking for our best storytellers.

We are holding a competition for young storytellers to submit a short story with a drawing to accompany it that incorporates the values of our schools.

The top three stories from each school will be framed and sent to the school as a digital file to print and display. The first-prize winner will have their story published in an A4 booklet that will showcase the winners from every school across our Trust.
