Try something different this World Book Day! Discover how one school recreated the magic of a bedtime story right in the middle of their school hall
Children were encouraged to help recreate a bedtime story setting
At our school we wanted to do something on World Book Day that would allow the children time to really enjoy sharing books. In an education system that places such an emphasis upon reading to improve ability, it was important for us to organise an event that did not place the focus upon reading skills, but emphasised the importance of reading for enjoyment alone. We decided therefore to invite the children to wear their pyjamas for the afternoon and share some ‘bedtime’ stories. This resulted in much excitement in itself, particularly when some members of staff joined in!
