World Book Day 2021

World Book Day ‘Share a Story’ Thursday 4th March 2021


There are lots of exciting things happening today!


Below you will find stories read by our very own Crackley Bank staff. There are also links to lots of fun activities for you to share with your families.


On our Teams sessions this afternoon you could bring your favourite book to share with the class – if you are in school you could share the book you are reading at the moment or one from the class library. You could even ask your grown-up about their favourite childhood story.


I hope you have lots of fun celebration World Book Day with us.


Remember to ask your grown up to send any photos of your World Book Day activities to your teacher.

Take a look at our lovely staff members below - please be aware that some stories are more suited to older children. (Especially Ms.Stevenson's - so please watch before you show your child) Many thanks.
