World Book Day 2021

World Book Day 2021


World Book is celebrated every year all around the world. This year it will be celebrated on the 4th March 2021. We will be celebrating this remotely across the whole school, so visit this page after this date to see examples of what we have done across school. 


Every year, the World Book Day organisation team up with renowned authors to produce short-stories which can be purchased for either £1 or using a free token. These books can be found in most book retailers and large supermarkets (such as Tesco or Asda). This year's token is digital and can be found below. Instructions on how to use this token can be found on the downloadable token below (including the terms and conditions of its use) or by using the link below:





EYFS – Joseph Coelho and Fiona Lumbers

Nursery and Reception looked at Lubna Loves World Book Day. 


They spent time looking at books, talking about why we love to read and making book character potato figures. 


Year 1 - Johnny Duddle


Year 1 explored Johnny Duddle's 'Expert Dino-Spotting'. They made some dinosaur spotting stories and made more potato characters.

Year 2 - Humza Arshad and Henry White


Year 2 looked at 'Little Badman' by Humza Arshad and Henry White. They created their own superheroes. 



Year 3 - Tom Fletcher


Year 3 looked at 'There's a Wolf in your Book'. They made their own story characters and described them. 

Year 4 - Jess French


Year 4 discussed theme of looking after the environment, using Jess French's 'Protect the Planet' as a platform for this. They created their own superheroes who look after our planet. 

Year 5 - Katherine Rundell


Year 5 explored Katherine Rundell's 'Skysteppers'. They attempted to create and describe their own sky-scene, similar to those found in the book. 


Year 6 - Zainab Mian

Year 6 discussed how to create interesting character based on our families and friends. This was based on the advice given my Zanib Mian, who often bases characters in her books on her family. We read part of 'Planet Omar: Operation Kind' and we really enjoyed it. We analysed our own family/friends and created our own diary entries.
