Sunderland AFC celebrates World Book Day

Foundation of Light marked the 20th anniversary of World Book Day with a special celebration at the Stadium of Light.

More than 120 pupils from primary schools across the North East were invited to the home of Sunderland AFC where they enjoyed activities and challenges using the power of football to inspire their love of reading and books.

The youngsters were joined by Black Cats John O’Shea, George Honeyman and Donald Love who picked their ‘Roald Dahl XI’ based on the weird and wonderful abilities of the authors’ magical characters.

Inspired by Michael Rosen’s ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ the schools made their way around the Stadium in search of SAFC mascot Samson as well as showing off their moves in Matilda-themed dance sessions led by Foundation of Light’s School of Dance teachers.

Throughout the day staff and pupils from the Beacon of Light School explored JK Rowling’s world of witchcraft and wizardry with a special Harry Potter ‘Wand Making’ workshop while students from the University of Sunderland delivered an Alice in Wonderland-themed session.

Amy Jaroszkiewicz, Education Coordinator at Foundation of Light, added: “We were very excited to host this World Book Day event which brought together youngsters in appreciation of reading and books.

This has been a fantastic event and we’ve really enjoyed seeing the children embrace the activities and demonstrate their passion for books.
Itโ€™s fantastic that through the Foundation of Light weโ€™re able to encourage reading and literacy, and give local schools the chance to celebrate World Book Day at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland AFC captain, John O'Shea

“World Book Day encourages children to explore the pleasures of books and reading, as passion which is shared by ourselves at Foundation of Light.

“The event was a huge success and demonstrated our unique way of using the power of football to teach literacy and inspire more children to read.”

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.
