World Book Day 2024

World Book Day 2024


At Brooke School, we recognise that reading is crucial and fundamental to the educational success of our learners. It provides an opportunity to develop a rich vocabulary, influence high quality writing and also provides a gateway to success in other subjects. But more than this, we want our learners to also develop a love of reading that will open their minds to a world of adventures and opportunities.


To develop learners love of reading we celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 7th March 2024, learners were invited to dress up as a character from their favourite book. On the day learners took part in a range of activities including meeting an author, listening to a story read by a professional story teller and taking part in activities ran by Warwickshire Library service.


Author visit


To celebrate World Book Day we had a visit from Christine Perkins, the author of Jack Flynn falls into Camelot. Learners enjoyed listening to the story and exploring the props. Learners asked some fantastic questions including:


“How do you become an Author?”

“Who illustrated the pictures?”

“How long did it take to write the book?”

Tom the Story Teller


To celebrate World Book Day we had a visit from Tom the Tale Teller. Tom told stories from around the world, chosen from his beautifully engraved story stick. Tom shared Stories about animals, of faraway places and magical beasts. Alongside the story stick Tom engaged learners with his story suitcase, full of props to help bring his stories to life. 

The Masked Reader 

Every day on the lead up to World Book Day we shared a video of a masked reader. Learners were encouraged to use their inference skills to guess who the masked reader was and what they were reading.
