Foundation celebrates World Book Day

16 March 2018

Foundation of Light marked the 21st anniversary of World Book Day with a special celebration at the Stadium of Light.

Nearly 100 pupils from local primary schools were invited to the home of Sunderland AFC where they enjoyed various activities and challenges as part of the Premier League’s Primary Stars initiative.

The youngsters from Sunderland and South Tyneside Primary Schools picked their ‘Roald Dahl XI’ based on the weird and wonderful abilities of the authors’ magical characters.

The event was due to be held on 1st March was postponed as many schools were closed due to the snow.

 

This is the second time we have held the event and all the youngsters had fun.

It’s great to see how the different activities and challenges can bring the books to life and how they are excited to read the book again.

Danielle Lane, Foundation of Light Primary Stars Primary Tutor

Inspired by Michael Rosen’s ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ the schools made their way around the Stadium in search of ‘The Gruffalo’ as well as showing off their moves in a dance session.

Local authors Yvonne Carlin-Page and husband Peter took part in a Q&A session with the pupils about writing before challenging the groups to fun tasks and quizzes about the book ‘Lily, Windy and the Witch’.

Throughout the day students from the University of Sunderland explored JK Rowling’s world of witchcraft and wizardry with a special Harry Potter workshop.

Foundation of Light delivers award-winning sports and education programmes for schools and academies across the North East, bringing subjects to life for pupils helping improve attitudes and skills while also increasing enthusiasm and motivation within the classroom.

All our sessions are mapped to the National Curriculum in areas including literacy, numeracy, ICT, science, history, physical education, Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) and more. All in-school delivery is suitable for Ofsted inspections.

For further information about Primary Stars programme which can help enhance curriculum delivery contact david.dowson@foundationoflight.co.uk or call 0191 551 5316.
