Hazelwick School

Our shared vision:

For each and every student to achieve their maximum potential.

World Book Day 2023

World Book Day will be celebrated nationally on the 2nd of March and the charity’s official website has a range of reading activities and resources for families, which you may find useful.

World Book Day Tokens

There has been a change to the tokens this year as the charity have made the decision to go digital! Parents/carers have been emailed the QR code which is needed to access the digital tokens and the library will display the code for students to access as well. I have included the link to the digital token terms and conditions but in a nutshell, the digital tokens can be exchanged for a free book from a selection of titles. A selection of the books will also be made available to students in Years 7 and 8 during Mrs Gray’s Reading lessons.

The Books

There is a selection of twelve books to choose from and these are divided into four different reader categories:

'Beginning, Early, Fluent, and Independent.  A focus on the Independent titles can be found on pages 11- 14 in the February edition of the Headteacher's Newsletter (, but the link to all the titles can be found below, as this may be useful for parents/carers with younger children.

The library will be running a range of competitions and a lunch time activity, celebrating student’s favourite authors. Our Reading Ambassadors will be staffing the ‘Book Swap’ in the library, where students can exchange a book from home. I hope you have a happy World Book Day!

Hazelwick Book Group

Twenty-four students from different year groups attended the January meeting of the Book Group and reading habits were discussed. Some excellent tips were swapped and I thought I would share some of these with you:

  • Try and read at the same time every day to establish a habit
  • Seek recommendations from friends to widen your reading
  • Try a different genre each month
  • Swap books with your best friend
  • Find somewhere comfy to read
  • Come to Book Group

Keep reading!
