World Book Day

World Book Day, Thursday 5th March (Week A), Share A Story

To break from our time-honoured tradition of dressing up as various characters from books, Hayesfield is opting for a mask-themed World Book Day 2020. Year 7 and 8 have already been looking at this during Art lessons:

World Book Day mask should:

  • Bring to life a story which has had a significant impact on your life
  • Represent the themes and concepts in the book- as opposed to an individual character
  • Use a range of artistic techniques, words (quotations) to best represent your story

Need to garner some ideas on how to bring something more abstract to life?- Take a look at Millie Parr’s amazing War Horse collage-
this was for her World Book Day presentation, but would work well in the form of as mask with a collation of all the images which best represent the book.

Ultimately, you need to be able to share a story that is important to you- Share A Story is all about those stories (fictional) you have read which have, in some way, had a significant impact on your life. Whether it is because through reading that story, you have chosen to take up a new hobby, seen something in a completely different light or made you reflect on something differently, our World Book Day is all about sharing those influential, perspective-changing reads.
