On Thursday 1st March, Al-Furqan Primary School celebrated World Book Day to highlight the Importance of Reading and inspire a passion for reading amongst all our pupils. The National Literacy Trust has reported that thousands of children around the UK do not own a book ! Each year, on World Book day, school children in the Uk are given £1 voucher to spend on a book of their choice.
Children in year 5M, enjoyed coming to school dressed as their favourite book character! Following a game of charades where the children mimed different book characters, all pupils shared their favourite 5 books, authors, characters, illustrators and also their favourite lines ! Finally, they all enjoyed designing a brand new book cover for one of their favourite books !
