World Book Day 2021

World Book Day 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian,


As part of our drive to maintain, promote and engage pupil interest in reading, English Martyrs’ will celebrate WORLD BOOK day on Thursday 4th March.


Although, this day might be a little different to previous years as we adapt to home learning. On this special day, children who attend school can come in dressed as their favourite character or author from any book.


If your child is learning from home, we would still like them to dress up and email a photograph of themselves dressed up and taking part in the world book day activities. Photographs can be emailed to their class teachers and we will create a big celebration video to mark the event.


During this special day and week build up, the children will be participating in lots of exciting activities which will be posted on our learning platform.

Next week, staff from English Martyrs’ will be taking pat in ‘The Masked Reader’, disguising themselves and reading extracts from their favourite books. Your challenge is to correctly identify who each reader is and the book they are reading.


We will also be sharing links to lots of interactive online resources, including video workshops with authors and illustrators. Keep an eye on our Facebook and website pages each day next week.


We will also be sending electronic book tokens in the coming week which can be used to purchase the special £1 books or can be used to put towards the cost of a full price book, once shops re-open.


We look forward to seeing all of our children dressed up and having fun on our special world book day on Thursday 4th March, whether at home or at school.

Stay Safe

Mr Kennedy
