Love animals? Love books? Read on…
Words with Woody is your school’s chance to do something different this World Book Day (2nd March 2017). Encourage your students to read for fun, while raising money for Wood Green, the Animals Charity.
Get involved and help teach young people the joys of reading, while the money your school raises will help give thousands of unwanted pets a second chance, every year.
Words with Woody is simple and you can choose to take part in two different ways:
In the week running up to World Book Day, children can take part in Words with Woody's sponsored read. They simply read as many books as they can in the week, getting sponsorship for every page or book read – whichever is easiest for them.
For the child who raises the most, a fantastic selection of books is up for grabs from well known authors.
We will provide sponsorship forms, goodies, a fundraising pack and any other information your school needs to help children get the most from their sponsored read.
If your children could dress up as an animal for the day, what would they come as?
From Winnie the Pooh and Fantastic Mr Fox to Peter Rabbit or maybe even Lassie – kids can come to school dressed as their favourite animal from a book, while donating just £1 to Wood Green.
Why not take it one step further on the day and hold a competition for the best dressed animal or ask them to bring their favourite book to read aloud in class.
You could even be in with the chance of winning a trip to our charity’s headquarters in Godmanchester, where a bespoke tour will teach your students more about animals, our charity and responsible pet ownership.
From donkeys and goats, cats and dogs, rabbits to ferrets and more, we take in animals of all shapes and sizes and the winning students could be in with a chance of meeting some of them.
Once signed up you’ll receive links to downloadable assets and even some goodies in the post to help your school get the most from Words with Woody.
