Reading Events

World Book Day 2024

We celebrated another brilliant World Book Day! The children came dressed as their favourite book characters (as they have done in previous years.)

We made class dioramas based on our class books and enjoyed guessing which staff were reading books in our Masked Reader event.

We’re looking forward to meeting Kate Pankhurst later on this month.



World Book Day 2023

We love to read at Inspire and share this love of reading every single day! So to have a whole day dedicated to reading alone is something that we just had to join in with.

The children enjoyed dressing as their favourite book characters or authors. Throughout the day, all of the children in school either worked with author Fay Evans or poet Matt Goodfellow. The children were so excited about this and got so much from these sessions.

The Masked Reader was another huge success. The children liked listening to the different adults around school reading their favourite books and were great at guessing who was who!


World Book Day 2022

Is there any better way to spend World Book Day than reading, discussing, sharing and appreciating books?

The children came into school dressed as a character from their favourite book and enjoyed taking part in a costume parade with their peers.

Throughout the day, each class from Nursery to Year 2 got to meet the fabulous Author and Illustrator Andrea Bowker. She read her book ‘Rab and His Lucky Shell’ to the children and signed copies of her book for them too!

Our favourite part of the day was listening to Inspire staff read poems, rhymes and extracts from their favourite books. The Masked Reader was a huge success and something that the children would like us to repeat next year!

World Book Day 2021

This year’s World Book Day celebrations have been very different at Inspire. Due to COVID19, not all children were able to celebrate World Book Day in school as we usually would. Instead, the children who were able to attend school were amazed by the two fantastic corridor displays created by Inspire staff. I wonder if you can guess which books inspired us?

During the day, the children from home enjoyed joining in via Google Classroom with a whole class reading session with their class and class teacher. Each year group chose a book that they really wanted to read together and school purchased a copy for every child.
