World Book Day - Live Lesson

Share a story and help save the fate of World Book Day!

Children of the UK - we need your help! The Anti-Word League has launched a super-evil plan to steal all of the words from our books, and only your combined efforts can help us save books everywhere.

This Live Lesson, hosted by CBBC's Ben Shires, ties in with the curriculum for English and literacy at KS2/2nd Level.

The programme challenges students to share stories and complete fun reading and writing activities to help Ben to save World Book Day.

It features famous World Book Day authors and illustrators Malorie Blackman, Rob Biddulph and Cressida Cowell.

This programme was first streamed live to schools in March 2019. Please note that we are no longer reviewing emails and messages from schools for inclusion in the lesson or on the page.
