Academy recreates hit TV show to unmask ‘The Masked Reader’ for World Book Day
Teachers have been recreating the magic of TV’s hit show The Masked Singer – TV’s craziest guessing game – to promote the love of reading for World Book Day.
Worle Community School Academy staff in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, have been dressing up as characters past and present while reading, to celebrate World Book Day on 4th March.
Masks being worn including a Halloween-esque disguise, an octopus and other distortions, watched by students in their homes.
Their true identities are a closely guarded secret until after World Book Day.
Principal Jacqui Scott said: “We Are absolutely passionate about reading at our Academy. This World Book Day and our The Masked Reader competition is another fun and fantastic opportunity to celebrate the love of reading.”
WCSA is part of The Priory Learning Trust which has a Reading Programme to encourage a love of reading for its 4 to 18 year olds.
WCSA starts each day with a time for every student to read quietly in their tutor time.
The Masked Singer is a global success TV show with editions on ITV in the UK, as well as America, Italy and Germany.
