Welcome to World Book Day 2021 at St Mary's


Can you guess who the masked reader is?

Staff have disguised themselves in our virtual school library to read extracts from their chosen books.

Your challenge is to identify who each reader may be.

When you have worked it out please post your answers on Seesaw.

Good luck!


Note to parents -  if your child does not like masked figures may we suggest they explore the virtual library below instead. 

It is full of stories read by various readers from around the world.


St Mary's Virtual Library - open up the file and click on any of the fantastic books to hear the story.

St Mary's Masked Reader 2021 - click on the book to hear a reading from a mystery storyteller...BUT NOT IF YOU DON'T LIKE MASKS!
