During the week, children celebrated their love of reading by wearing their pajamas to school for a snuggle up and read day, through live virtual workshops with author Nick Toczek from England and by hosting a book swap within their year groups.
Throughout the week, children were challenged to take part in different competitions such as:
- Extreme Reading where children were dared to ‘Get Caught Reading’ in weird and wonderful places.
- Shoe Box Dioramas are a yearly favourite at BST. The children were asked to make a diorama of their favourite book.
- A new and exciting challenge for BST this year was to create ‘Wooden Spoon Characters’ – The children were tasked with creating a character out of a wooden spoon or even tell a story with a full set of characters!
The week ended with another virtual visit from author Nick Toczek who delivered a whole school assembly live from England! The children and teachers all got into the spirit of world book day by coming into school dressed as their favourite book character…or crayon!
