Discovering Together

World Book Day

We inspire children to love all things books and reading every single day of the year. At Stanton, we see World Book Day as a birthday for books; a day to celebrate how wonderful books really are!

World Book Day is a big event at Stanton and the children love to get involved in the exciting activities we create. 

Over the past few years we have enjoyed:

  • Booky Breakfast serving Potter Pancakes with Golden Ticket syrup, Paddington Orange Marmalade Scones and Alice in Wonderland 'Drink Me' fruit smoothies
  • Staff performances- 'Who Snapped Red Crayon?' and a retelling of 'Supertato' 
  • Book Doors Trail- every door was transformed into a book!
  • Who's Coming for Dinner?- guessing the dinner guests from the clues on the table
  • Potato Book Characters 
  • Reading Rocks
  • Dressing up as our favourite book characters
  • Dressing up as a word
  • The Masked Reader- Can you guess which member of staff is behind the mask sharing their book recommendation?
  • Virtual Word Book Day Scavenger Hunt
  • Ask an Author 
  • Share a story- children across the school sharing a book together 
  • Reading in unusual places
  • And lots more!
