More than a school

World Book Day!

World Book Day 2024 was a fantastic day at Smith’s Wood Primary Academy! Both pupils and staff came dressed in their comfiest clothes and PJs, ready to enjoy a wealth of book-related fun.  

The children took part in World Book Day assemblies, themed lessons (based on their favourite books), listened to a guest teacher reading and received their World Book Day tokens to spend on a book of their choice. Here are some photos of the children enjoying their day celebrating the world of books.

Not only this, many pupils created incredible ‘Story Jars’ as part of this year’s competition, demonstrating their love of books. Well done to everyone who participated – all of the entries were so impressive!

Congratulations to all of our winners (as selected by pupils in each class). For pictures of the winning jars and more pictures from the day, please see our gallery.
