The Masked Reader

Today marks World Book Day and to celebrate we have a competition for you. You may have heard of the TV programme 'The Masked Singer' well we would like to present to you 'The Masked Reader'. Teachers at Downend School have been filming themselves reading extracts from their favourite books - but with a twist. All the teachers are masked and you have to work out who is speaking!

Simply click on the links to watch, then write down the number of the book and the teacher you think is speaking and send it in to your English teacher!
