Read any good books lately?

8 March 2018

Thursday 1 March was World Book Day, the world’s largest celebration of books, authors and reading that takes place in over 100 countries.

We made it a special day in school with heaps of reading-related activities. The Forum hosted a giant display of staff recommendations of their favourite books, and students were invited to add their own recommendations. Teachers read aloud to all year groups, with stories from around the world.

Pupils were challenged to guess their teacher’s costume character, with staff in literary costumes from Jacob Marley to Alice in Wonderland, from Stick Man to Snow White. And everyone talked about their favourite books for much of the day!
