World Book Day is on the horizon! What is World Book Day I hear you ask? On the 6th March children of all ages will come together to celebrate the amazing-ness that is books and reading, AND receive free book vouchers from publishers and booksellers around the country.
I was lucky enough to be invited to Campsbourne School in North London (along with several other exciting authors) to run workshops based on our latest books.
The whole school had made an enormous effort with fancy dress, the theme being our favourite literary heroes.
Even the teachers looked the part!
The year 6 classes were brimming with ideas for their own characters and quickly got to work coming up with their own designs. Inspired by many of the bold costumes, the groups collaborated together to come up with their own stories, resulting in fantastic short films.
If you are looking for your own book based delights, the World Book Day Website is brimming with ideas and fun free activities for children, cleverly organised to suit different age groups.
