Book Fair Takeover
What is Book Fair Takeover?
Well, the idea is simple: let your pupils take over your Book Fair!
We provide you with tips, timelines and a comprehensive toolkit to help give your pupils the confidence and independence to run your Book Fair as a class or as a whole school enterprise project.
With various job roles that the pupils can take on, the Takeover links to the curriculum in the areas of Financial understanding, PSHE and Citizenship, Mathematics, English, ICT, Art and Design.
Our Book Fair Takeover ambassadors are BAFTA-winning children’s TV presenters and bestselling authors Sam & Mark!
Mark says, “It’s great to see kids work together for a common goal and even better when it involves situations they may have to encounter in later life.” Sam agrees, and adds that “anything that may help kids love books and get reading early, I’m up for.”
Look out for Book Fair Takeover tips, ideas and inspiration from Sam and Mark in the Teacher’s Guide and the other free resources. Make sure to share these with your volunteers, and don’t forget to enter our Book Fair Takeover School of the Year competition for a chance to win an iPad, €500 worth of books – and the chance for Sam and Mark to visit your school!
