Here it is! World Book Day 2021! Our first virtual day to celebrate everything bookish! On here you will find all sorts of activities to have a go at today. Please share anything and everything you do via the blog or our email address – we especially want to see photos of you dressed up as your favourite book character, maybe you can tell us why you chose that character too!

Here’s a Maths activity for you to enjoy… can you work out who the winner of the costume competition is?
Next, have a go at this scavenger hunt. You can get all the books you have at home out and find all the things listed.
