Knowsley celebrates World Book Day 2019

by Gemma Melling

World Book Day took place on Thursday, 7 March, 2019. Across Knowsley, hundreds of pupils went to school dressed as their favourite fictional character (like the pupils from Sylvester Academy, pictured above) – and during the day, book related activities were enjoyed in the classrooms.

Lots of schools encouraged pupils to read their favourite stories aloud – in some cases, older pupils read to their younger counterparts, or parents were invited in to share a story with their child during the school day.

Children were also inspired to write their own pieces of creative fiction and share them with their friends and teachers.

And school staff were also in the spirit – with many teachers in Knowsley also coming to school dressed as their favourite characters!

And throughout all of this, our schools were sharing pictures of their celebrations to Twitter. We’ve gathered together our favourites below – we hope you enjoy them!
