Activity 3

   Make your own Reading Corner or Snug   

In school we create beautiful book corners for your children to enjoy. Creating a comfortable, beautiful space with tempting books makes such a difference to the children’s excitement about reading and their enjoyment of reading in school.


For World Book Day we would like the children to create their own book corner or reading snug at home! They could think about how they lay out the books, whether they could add some decorations or toys to make it a really lovely space. It doesn’t have to be an actual corner – any space will do. Of course parents/ carers can help out, it should be a really fun project to work on as a family.

Once the children have created this space we would love to see photographs of it. Please send the photographs in to  marked for the attention of your child’s class teacher.

Below are a few examples to give you some ideas:



Now read a book in your special reading corner/snug.

Activity 6

Design and make a puppet

Think about our last lesson. We looked at stick puppets, string puppets, hand puppets and finger puppets. Choose one of these types to make. Then design and make your puppet. Remember to plan by drawing your design first then making a list of the materials you will need to make your puppet. When you have finished making your puppet draw or taje a photograph of it then write an evaluation of your puppet e.g. what went well, what was a bit tricky, what could you improve if you made the puppet again etc..

You could choose a story and make puppets for the characters in the story. 

Use your puppets to retell the story to your family. 

Harry made some lovely hand puppets
