World Book Day at St Andrew’s

World Book Day is one of our favourite celebrations at St Andrew’s Montessori. Books are an important part of learning at our school – whether it’s a beautifully told story that inspires imagination and creativity or a fact book that piques curiosity.

World Book Day

For us, every day is a day to remember how wonderful books are but we do enjoy an excuse to dress up as our favourite fiction characters. This year we had an array of animals, heroes, and fairies as well as a couple of dinosaurs, a ballerina, Wally (Where’s Wally), Harry Potter, a squid, a spaceman and even a rocket from Oliver Jeffers’ How to Catch a Star.

The aim of the World Book Day charity is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. According to the charity, reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income.

We love this and we had great fun sharing our favourite stories. Do visit our Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/standrewsmontessori/) for some of our favourite World Book Day pics, and for other behind-the-scenes action at our school.
