DANETREE JUNIOR SCHOOL CELEBRATES WORLD BOOK DAY
Willy Wonka, Horrid Henry, Dennis The Menace and many more unusual students arrived at Danetree Junior School, West Ewell, Epsom, Surrey on Friday 2 March 2012, when pupils came to school dressed as their favourite book character to celebrate this year’s World Book Day.
Literacy Subject Leader Sarah Mayes said: “In return for dressing up we are asking the children to donate a book that is either new or one that they no longer read, to put in each classroom’s book corners. We have many avid readers in the school and by recycling books it will give everyone even more choice of new reading material!”
Every child in the school received a £1 book voucher on World Book Day which can be spent at a number of book sellers and online.
See the great pictures below:

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world. This is the 15th year there’s been a World Book Day.
