Click here to find out all about The Masked Reader


This year, our whole school event for World Book Day is going to be 'The Masked Reader' - to follow simply along the lines of the TV programme The Masked Singer (if you haven't see this, there's an example at the bottom of the page).


For this event, the children can dress up and disguise themselves in whatever way they wish and wear a mask. Any kind of costume, any kind of mask - the idea is to disguise themselves. Ideally, we would like it to be a short story - a childhood favourite text or favourite author, but it could be a poem or rhyme etc - especially for reluctant readers, as there is less to read.


So how does this work? 

1) The children provide one clue about themselves - nothing too obvious that would give their identity away.

2) They then record themselves reading at home, out at the park, wherever they wish, with video if possible so that their audience can guess their identity to better effect.

3) They provide another clue about themselves after their recording.

4)They then upload their recording onto Seesaw.

5) You have all week to do this, we will be looking at them the week beginning 8/3/21


If you have seen the TV show you will know the format of how this works, but if not watch this video clip from a celebrity of the latest series.



The winner will be decided the following week after the classes have all watched the videos and tried to guess who the masked reader is. The winner from each year group will receive a gift card,


So  I wonder

Who will be behind the mask?
