Pyjamarama 2024: Registrations are open for the ultimate reading day!

Published on: 11 Mawrth 2024

Pyjamarama is coming back on 17 May - so get ready to jump into your favourite PJs and enjoy a day celebrating books and reading.

BookTrust is inviting primary schools, nurseries, community groups, families, and libraries to jump into Pyjamarama 2024.

Pyjamarama is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the joy of books and stories - all in the comfort of your pyjamas.

And by raising money for BookTrust along the way, Pyjamarama participants will be helping us to spread the magic of reading to the children and families who need it most. 

Research shows that children who read are happier, healthier, more empathetic, more creative, and that they also do better at school. Too many children are missing out on these benefits, so the money raised will go to ensuring as many children as possible experience the worlds of wonder that books provide.

Mr Pocknell from Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Primary School said: 

"Pyjamarama is the perfect reading puzzle piece, bringing our school together in a celebration of reading.

"From dressing up in PJs to cross-year reading sessions, it not only encourages a vital life skill but also provides valuable insights into the children's reading preferences.

"With its well-organised structure and BookTrust's resources, Pyjamarama naturally fits into our school, making it a cherished annual event that teachers and children eagerly anticipate."

After registration, participants will be fully supported by BookTrust and given access to a range of exclusive activities, resources and video content – all to ensure the Pyjamarama experience is as simple, interactive and enjoyable as possible, while allowing groups to create their own unique day of reading fun.

BookTrust will be celebrating Pyjamarama day on May 17, but groups are welcome to choose a day that works for them.
