Resources for World Book Day

For some fun with your key stage 3 classes, World Book Day activities includes a quick quiz, story writing task and a guess the book by the pictures activity. There are even more ideas in Ideas for World Book Day, including a vegimal book character competition, extreme reading and even a Great British Book Off!

If you’re lucky enough to work in one of the many schools which consider whole school reading a matter for every staff member and student, why not start the Great reading race or Reading bingo challenge with your classes, tutor groups or staff, with celebratory assemblies, and prizes too?

If you’re keen to get students talking about the value of reading, Discussion cards or Thoughts on reading are great starting places, with some provocative statements about who gets to choose what they read.

Write for us!

We are so lucky to have a fantastic team of teacher-writers sending in their classroom resources. It gives us the buzz of being in the classroom with you when we work on them!

Many of the resources I’ve mentioned above feature in our Independent reading section on Teachit English. We’re on the lookout for creative resources for KS3, and if you’re developing more of these kinds of resources, we’d love to see them.
