World Book Day 2021
Thursday 4th March 2021 is World Book Day! This is a massive celebration of books and reading which takes place across the country at this time every year. Here at WSSES we are celebrating world book day in a number of different ways to inspire our children to love books and reading.
* World book day tokens have been emailed to all families to enable children to purchase one of the special world book day books for just £1
* All children have been given the chance to sneak a peek at the special world book day books online to see which they would most like to read
* Children have been invited to take part in the share a story reading stars activity and can earn a special certificate for completing all their stars. This is a brilliant way to encourage different types of reading and can be found here:
There are games for younger and older reading stars!
* All children will have the opportunity to take part in a special world book day themed live Teams lesson on World Book Day using special materials created by the real authors and illustrators of the world book day books.
* Last but not least, the staff in school have been busy creating a Masked Reader activity where the children have to try to guess which member of staff is reading behind the mask and what book they are reading.
Who is reading behind the mask and what book are they reading?
Masked reader ALIEN Masked reader BLUE RASPBERRY Masked reader FOX
Masked reader KING WORM Masked reader LOCHNESS Masked reader PIGEON
Helping families have fun with reading!
