Watch again: World Book Day 2021 - Live Lesson

Join us for World Book Day to share a story

This very special Live Lesson for World Book Day is aimed at helping primary pupils to celebrate books and share a story.

The 30-minute Live Lesson, hosted by CBBC's Ben Shires and Bitesize Daily's Mr Smith and tied into key curriculum objectives for Key Stage 2/2nd Level, was live on BBC Teach and on the CBBC channel on the morning of Thursday, 4 March 2021 at 11:30am.

Learn all about themes in stories and how to identify them, hear about some of the nation's favourite themes, and meet some of the incredible people that write about them. To wrap up the Live Lesson, a live question and answer session was held with comedian and author of the Little Badman series, Humza Arshad.
