World Book Day

World Book Day

Posted: 4th March 2021

Families were given inspiration to create an entire day devoted to reading.

To mark World Book Day, pupils at Magna Carta Primary Academy were given a suggested itinerary to help them to weave reading into their day.

Throughout the day, families were invited to take part in various activities at home, including –

  • guessing who the reader behind the book was.
  • watching the online World Book Day Share a Story Live events, where celebrities helped to celebrate the event
  • holding an indoor reading picnic, with blankets, snacks and their favourite books, poems or song lyrics to read aloud to each other, explaining why they liked it
  • going for a walk and reading all the signs they could spot in their community
  • completing word maths problems online
  • decorating an item at home with a book theme, from paper plates and pebbles, to doors and wooden spoons
  • reading a recipe and learning how to cook a family meal

Deputy headteacher and English lead Teresa Avey said: “Families that read together succeed together and World Book Day is the perfect opportunity to promote and instil a love of reading by taking part in shared reading activities.

“Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator for success in life. Reading together can encourage a love of reading and it’s fun for everyone.”

Marios Solomonides, headteacher, said: “It has been wonderful to see so many of our pupils and their families embracing World Book Day, even though most of them are at home.

“When life is difficult, as it has been for so many people this year, escaping into the world of a good book can do wonders. This is the message we want to get across to our pupils.”

Children were also given book tokens to spend online.
