World Book Day 2021 – Masked Reader Competition
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, staff across school have been busy recording themselves reading aloud and practising their reading fluency. However, they are all in disguise! Your task is to uncover each masked reader. On Seesaw, you will find an answer sheet which you can complete and send back to your class teacher – you have until 9am on Friday 5th March 2021. The person with the most correct answers in each class will win a brand new book as a prize.
