It’s only a few days to go until World Book Day 2011…but that doesn’t mean it’s too late for your school to organise something to celebrate the occasion. Here are three simple ideas:
These days it’s not unusual to have a few unwanted books lying around at home – things you’ve read long ago, or books that were bought as presents but that you already had. Why not ask your pupils to round up all those books and have a lunchtime book sale on Thursday? Price them as simply as possible: every £2 sends another book to sub-Saharan Africa!
In many African countries, tents are used for reading, sharing books and other activities. Why not create a book tent at school and charge anyone who wants to read a book £2 to go in there?
You can’t go wrong with the tried and trusted cake sale! All you need are some delicious cakes, flapjacks and other sweet treats to sell, and you’ve got a surefire success on your hands. Again, keep your prices simple. You could charge 50p per slice of cake, for example.
What has your school got planned for World Book Day?
