World Book Day
2nd March 2017
'World Book Day 2017 is finally upon us with more exciting activities than ever. The potatoes are taking over the books and we have dressed up to take over the potatoes (we are designing them to look like our favourite book characters). We have also designed book tokens we are also having a book swap. What a lot of fun activities we are doing!'

World Book Day Award
We are pleased to announce that Hughenden Primary School was one of the runners up for the World Book Day Award. A few months ago, the whole school produced artwork to answer the question 'Which stories have made your school a school of books?'. A selection of this artwork was then made into a display to show our school’s love of stories. According to the World Book Day website, 76,000 children were involved in the creation of entries for the competition. We are really proud that Hughenden’s love of reading was recognised by the judges Oliver Jeffers (bestselling author, illustrator and artist), Sam Winston (fine artist), Kirsten Grant (Director, World Book Day) and Alex O’Connell (Arts Editor, The Times). Our prize – a signed copy of “A Child of Books” by judges Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston – can be seen in the school reception area. The winners and runners up can be seen on http://www.worldbookday.com/wobod/
