Fantastic for World Book Day

I love the resources in this pack and have printed some of them out to use as a display for World Book Day. Great variety of imaginative content thank you so much.

Good stuff

It's quite nice! A lot of it is stuff we've seen elsewhere in the Bonus Pack, but it's good to have it all gathered together. Certainly nice to inspire the children with famous authors they have read or may read.

Thanks for your review, Rowan. A number of these resources came from existing packs, as they were also relevant to this topic. However, 80% of the pages in this pack are brand new and have been created especially for this new Teaching Pack.
