Barnett Wood Infant School

Birthday Books

At Barnett Wood, we love to celebrate birthdays! We are always so excited to see you on (or near) your special day and love to hear all about your birthday in our Friday assemblies.


Instead of bringing sweets/treats into school, which as a healthy school we would like to minimise, we ask that pupils who wish to bring something in to share with their friends donate a Birthday Book instead! 


When you bring in a ‘Birthday Book’ we will place a lovely, personalised label inside the front cover of your book with your name, age and class and then you can present this book to your class. Your book can then be added to your class library for you, your friends and future classes to read and enjoy.


If you would like to share in this wonderful birthday book scheme, you can choose a book from our wish lists of age-appropriate books (see lists below) or alternatively you may wish to donate a copy of your own favourite age appropriate book.


We are very excited about our Birthday Books scheme and look forward to adding some birthday book sparkle to our libraries!
