- Teachers and schools
You are invited to celebrate World Book Day 2021 with Usborne!
Teachers you are our heroes! And we want to thank you by inviting you to join us in a fun-filled day of free activities to celebrate World Book Day.
With the help of some of our amazing authors, we have created five different sessions for your classes to take part in based on a mixture of fiction and non-fiction books:
- A “disastrous coach trip” creative writing session with Matt Brown, author of the Dreary Inkling series
- A detective writing session with Serena Patel, author of the Anisha, Accidental Detective series
- A design your own book task and quiz challenge with Alex Frith, editor of the 100 Things to Know series
- A fact-filled poster creating session based on our Beginners series
- A Guinness World Record breaking challenge with Jenny Pearson, author of The Incredible Record Smashers
With book readings from our authors, video content to explain the tasks and downloadable activities, we’d love pupils across the UK to get creative, discover new things and stretch their imaginations. You can access all the materials on our World Book Day Activities page.
And that’s not all!
We know that one of the best bits about World Book Day for children is immersing them in a world of books, so we’ve transported our usual physical bookfairs into a virtual setting.
Our Independent Usborne Partners are on hand to arrange a virtual bookfair from start to finish and can tailor the books they show to suit the needs of your pupils – be it something for reluctant readers, books to stretch and challenge, books to support with home learning, and books for those that love a good fact.
Plus, every book sold contributes towards a free book allowance for your school to boost its libraries and classrooms with exciting new additions. Ask your Partner to arrange a virtual bookfair for your school or find your local Independent Usborne Partner here.
Oh, and don’t forget your World Book Day tokens – every child can save at least £1 on their next forever book!
We can’t wait to hear what your classes get up to this World Book Day!
