This year at Mission Grove, World Book Day is taking place on Thursday, 5th March 2020. We would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion.

Word Book Day Tokens 

Every child receives a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at The token can be redeemed at most UK bookshops. Please help your child to use it on or around World Book Day by visiting your local bookshop.

Veg-tastic Competition - Design your own Vegetable Book Character!

This year, we would like the children to design and make a book character out of their favourite vegetable at home, and bring it into school on World Book Day.

Harry Potato

The Gruffa-potato

Pota-ddington Bear

These are just some ideas - you can choose any character and any vegetable! Prizes will be given to the most creative and well-thought out designs!

Reading Together

We would also like to invite you into the school for morning reading to read with your child (or a group of children) around the school. You can either bring along a favourite book from home or use one of the fantastic books we have at school.

If your child would like to dress up they can, however there is no requirement to. We would rather celebrate their love of reading with you!

Put Thursday, 5th March 2020 into your calendars!
