CBeebies live lesson

BookTrust teams up with CBeebies on an interactive lesson for children at primary school, aged 5-7.

The 25-minute live lesson, 'Stories by the Sea', explores different ways of writing stories.

Inspired by 'Old Jack's Boat: Rockpool Tales', the show encourages children to create their own fictional tales – with a fun, nicely nautical twist. Schools can also download a suggested lesson guide and teacher resources.

The live lesson marked the start of the build-up to Children's Book Week 2016. Every year, schools, libraries, children and parents join together to celebrate books and reading for pleasure for a fun-filled week.

Why not get involved in 2017?
