St James Primary School received £200 from Taylor Wimpey in support of the national event which is now in its 23rd year. World Book Day aims to encourage children of all ages to enjoy and appreciate the pleasures of reading.

Sarah Filder, literacy subject leader at the school in Greenacre Street, said: “World Book Day is a fantastic initiative which really encourages children to develop their reading. This year we asked the pupils to bring in a cushion and set aside time to ‘snuggle up with a book’. Thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s donation, we’ll be able to purchase new books and we can’t wait for our pupils to enjoy some new stories.”

We hope the pupils had a brilliant day celebrating their favourite characters and that they all enjoy reading some new books together.”
