The world wouldn’t be the same without books. That’s why this week, along with schools in more than 100 different countries worldwide, we’ve been celebrating World Book Day!

At Drove Primary School, we love to encourage our pupils to read. World Book Day is a fantastic opportunity to engage children with reading and share new books with our pupils. To celebrate the day our staff dressed up as Where's Wally and hid around the school. We then sent our pupils a PowerPoint with all the pictures so they could go and find the Wallys.

A massive thank you is also in order to the Swindon Soroptimists for donating a large number of books for our pupils. We are sure the children will get a lot of use out of them!

Books are a paper portal into another world. From fictional stories such as Harry Potter to historical works of philosophy like Leviathan, we believe there is a book for everyone.

Reading is not only important for learning but is also a wonderful hobby. Helping pupils become enthusiastic learners is a goal we forever strive towards at The White Horse Federation, and World Book Day is an important part of the journey.
