Each World Book Day social media is awash with young children dressed as Harry Potter and various characters from Roald Dahl and David Walliams books, and it may seem like it’s got very little to do with your KS3 and 4 classrooms. But that absolutely does not mean that World Book Day isn’t for you.
This year, in fact, on top of the usual selection of £1 books, there are four full novels and a poetry collection for older children and teens, priced at £2.50 (or £1.50 with your £1 book token) that your students can enjoy.
You can find out a bit more about World Book Day and how to get involved at worldbookday.com, and if you’re after some inspiration and ideas, here are some excellent resources you can use.
On the World Book Day site you’ll find a resource pack, a secondary assembly and accompanying guidelines.
Check out all of the secondary resources here.
Stuck for ways to celebrate World Book Day? Well this PDF produced a few years ago features 20 failsafe ideas for secondary schools. Pick and mix according to your setting and schedule.
You can download it on the Guardian Teacher Network here.

This resource from Film Education has a range of activities comparing popular KS3 and 4 texts with their film adaptations, such as Sherlock Holmes, War Horse and Wuthering Heights.
It looks at genre, and differences between the mediums of film and literature, and there is a fantastic activity where students have to think about how they would adapt their favourite book into movie form.
Plus, there’s even a long list of books/films for inspiration, each with links to teaching for resources.
You can find all this here.
Stuck for ideas on reluctant readers? Try this lesson plan Karl Vadaszffy that will help you promote reading for pleasure by introducing students to books they won’t find in the school library.
