World Book Day

World Book Day 2021

Scroll down to find lots of exciting activities to complete this World Book Day.
Activity 1 The Invisible String

This year is a little different because we can’t all be in school together, with this in mind, we decided to share one very special book: The Invisible String, by Patrice Karst. The story is about an invisible string made of love. Even though you can’t see the string; you can feel it in your heart. The string connects us to the ones we love and miss, when we are apart. Click the image below to hear the story.


Activity 2 The World Book Day Song

The World Book Day Song below follows MC Grammar as he embarks on a journey to find a new book, courtesy of his World Book Day £1 book voucher. On his way he stumbles across a fantastic array of classic and new children’s books – can you spot them all?! How many different story titles can you hear?


Activity 3 The Masked Reader

The staff at St. Joseph’s are excited to share with you our World Book Day Masked Reader Event! The teachers have chosen a book to read, their faces are hidden with a mask and their voices disguised. Click on the links below to hear the story and then it’s down to you to guess who you think is behind the mask. There is a worksheet below with some clues to help you with your guesses. We hope that you have fun guessing and enjoy listening to the stories.
