World Book Day 2021

Zana Fraillon launches World Book Day at Parkdale Primary

We were so lucky to have Zana Fraillon, author of The Lost Soul Atlas, The Bone Sparrow and Wisp to launch World Book Day 2021 for us. She sent us a video, especially to Parkdale and answered personalised questions about being an author from the children as well as setting us a writing challenge based on her brilliant picture book Wisp. Take a look at her video using the link below. 
World Book Day 2021 - A selection of reading and Wisp inspired outcomes by school and remote learners.

World Book Day Thursday 4th March 2021

We are really excited about World Book Day. At Parkdale, we are extending our celebrations over the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of that week. Children can wear their pjs to school on Thursday 4th if they wish. Home learners, you don’t need to get dressed either! Our school theme is Hopes and Dreams and we will be enjoying the fantastic picture book Wisp by Zana Fraillon.

The World Book Day Website

There are lots of fantastic resources on the WBD site, from cooking, colouring, puzzles and craft activities to reading, listening to stories and videos and much much more.

Be sure to check out the exciting live events at 10:30am on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of March

The book recommendations are also a great way to help children and families choose new books and explore new authors. Well worth a look too! 


These are the £1 books for 2021
