Thursday 4th March – World Book Day📖

“World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading”

Today is World Book Day and while it’s a shame that it hasn’t fallen on a day which we’re all in school together, it doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate it at home.

Activities could include:

– dressing up as one of your favourite book characters (We would love to see your photos, please email them to me)

– having a look at the PowerPoint (attached below), with information about World Book Day and why we celebrate it. W B D was created by UNESCO in 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading and, as we are a Rights and Respecting School, it is important that we celebrate it.

– having a go at the quiz that we made (see Google classroom)

– filling out the Book Scavenger Hunt (attached below). We would usually raid the library but you’ll have to see if you can hunt through your own books.

– having a look for your own activities on the World Book Day website. They have loads of resources on there! – https://www.worldbookday.com/

– If you need some inspiration, think about some of the books we’ve all read in school. Some of the books we’ve read include: Once Upon an Ordinary School Day, The Day the Crayons Quit, The Twits, Stuck, The First Drawing, Stone Age Boy, How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth, and we started reading Stig of the Dump.
