CBeebies live lesson

Last year, BookTrust partnered 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, which is led by BookTrust. During this week, schools, libraries, children and parents join together to celebrate books and reading for pleasure. Why not get involved in 2017?
