THE Masked Reader, Where’s Wally and Ready, Steady, Read were just some of the fun activities children enjoyed as part of World Book Day.
Pupils at Cooks Spinney Primary Academy, in Harlow, took part in a programme of events to promote the joy of books and reading.
The school arranged –
Children and members of staff dressed up as their favourite book characters and took their favourite book into school.
Each pupil received a book token to exchange for a free book.
Magdalena Dackombe, English curriculum lead, said: “We value reading very highly and always aim to encourage our pupils to read more broadly, so celebrating World Book Day was an ideal occasion to promote and engage pupils’ interest in reading.”
The school raised £548 from Ready, Steady, Read, £125 from World Book Day donations and £94.98 from the book fair to spend on books.
