World Book Day 2023

WORLD BOOK DAY 2023 - Thursday 2nd March *

This year for World Book Day we are taking part in a sponsored 'Readathon' on behalf of the 'Read for Good' charity. ( )


The children will bring home a sponsorship card and a bookmark. The money raised will be spent by the charity to provide books for children in hospital. Also, Wheatcroft will receive free books to the value of 20% of the total amount raised. Our Readathon will begin on Monday 27th February and finish on Friday 10th February. Any donation - no matter how big or small - will make a huge difference. Thank you in advance for your support.

On World Book day (Thursday 2nd March) we will be conducting a book swap within our classes. If your child would like to send a book in to swap, please do so. Please make sure any books sent in for swaps are of good quality and are not longer wanted. We are not dressing up for World Book Day so please send the children to school in their uniform. We will also be having a live author event in school with best-selling author Michael Morpurgo, which is really exciting!
