World Book Day 2021

World Book Day 2021 - Thursday 4th March 


This year the pandemic won’t stop us celebrating World Book Day! 
We will celebrate virtually and have a fun filled day. 

Our English Leader, Miss Salter, will start the day off at 9am with a hilarious story that you won’t want to miss.  You can spend the day dipping in and out listening to different teachers reading a range of stories.


If you want to get busy making things follow the links below.  You could make a bookmark, make your own little book and design a front cover. You can even think of your own character for a new story. 


Don’t forget, if you dress up as a book character for the day, you can add photos to Tapestry. We will then add them to this page for everyone to enjoy.  We would always like to see photos of you reading.


When you come back to school on March 8th your teacher will give you a free book to take home and enjoy!


Happy Reading!
