World Book Day 2020

On Thursday 5th March, pupils and staff at Shirland Primary school took part in World Book Day. 


World Book Day is a registered charity which aims to 'encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own'. This year the theme was 'share a million stories'. The charity provides a £1 book token to each child in schools across the UK, which can be exchanged for one of 15 specific books provided for World Book Day or towards a book costing £2.99 or more, in participating bookstores and supermarkets.


In school, the pupils and staff dressed up as characters for books, brought in photos of themselves enjoying a book in unusual places. As well as this, pupils have been set a fun colour chart homework over the next few weeks where a section is coloured in for each 10 minutes they share a story. This can be either reading a story themselves or someone reading to them.
