  • World Book Day

    2nd March 2017 - Garforth Academy

    It’s the 2nd March and its World Book Day! It’s the celebration of everything bookish, with characters we love, to characters we love to hate, celebrated in schools across the country.  We all have a favourite story whether it be a classic childhood favourite like Harry Potter or a more mature choice like War and Peace. Why not bond over books and spend a couple of minutes today thinking about your favourite character from a book then share the story with your child and the reasons why you love it so much?
