World Book Day

World Book Day

Posted: 8th March 2019

New reading strategies have been launched at a primary school as part of World Book Day.

Magna Carta Primary Academy used the themed day as an opportunity to further promote reading in school.

Around the school, pupils and adults regularly stopped what they were doing to pick up a book and read.

The Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) initiative encourages all members of a school community to always have a book to hand. Whenever the school bell sounded, reading became the priority.

The school has also signed up to the 20 ideas for celebrating books and reading by the Centre of Literacy in Primary Education. Based around the action words of “create”, “imagine”, “discover”, “explore” and “experience”, pupils took part in activities on World Book Day.

Headteacher Marios Solomonides said: “The purpose of DEAR is to bring home to pupils how important reading is and also how rewarding, satisfying and fun it is. It is something we must always find time for.

“The activities pupils took part in on World Book Day will now become usual practice and form part of our reading curriculum.”

Pupils who went to school dressed as their favourite book character were invited to talk to their classes about the story they had chosen.
