World Book Day / Book Week Activities

World Book Day / Book Week Activities

Here are some whole school activity ideas for book week. My favourite is the book cover quiz. Print the powerpoint, stick up the close ups of book covers on a display somwhere around school and get all classes to visit. They use the provided worksheets to record which book each close up is from (and author if they can). Just check with the answer sheet that you number the pictures of the close ups properly as there are differentiated KS1 and KS2 pictures. Also attached an activity where children discuss an illustration from a book :) Enjoy!
