On Thursday 1st March, we had our annual celebration for World Book Day. This kicked off on the Tuesday with a week of assemblies celebrating the joys and benefits of reading and giving the students a glimpse of what was on offer for this year.
Once again, undeterred by the snow, our staff members dressed up as characters from their favourite books and invited tutor groups to guess their characters in order to win a prize. The winning tutor group will receive their prize in assembly next week.
Pupils also had to guess where different quotes were from that were on display around school.
All pupils in Year 7, 8 and 9 stopped what they were doing during one of their lessons across English, Science, Languages, Art and Humanities for 20 minutes to spend time reading their books that they brought in from home.
Every pupil in Year 7 to 11 received a £1 book token that they can spend in bookstores. There is a great selection of £1.50 full- length books aimed for young people these include An Abundance of Katherines by John Green and Fly by Night by Frances Hardinge. If the selection of £1.50 full-length books are not what you are interested in, you can also put your voucher towards any other book and get £1 off the price. If you would rather get an audiobook, you can do as long as the audiobook costs at least £2.99. Do not forget to spend your voucher by Sunday 25th March 2018!
We would love to know what you have spent your £1 book voucher on and what you thought about the World Book Day celebrations. Please spend 5 minutes completing the questionnaire on Brightspace on the Assembly page so that we can hear your thoughts!
