World Book Day

                 20190307 083021


It’s 7th March 2019 and it’s World Book Day. Staff and students have been celebrating all week and today is no different.

Throughout the week, we’ve had a house competition to see which of our six houses can produce the longest chain of book review bunting. Throughout break and lunchtimes students have had the opportunity to collect loyalty points by listening to podcasts. Mrs Wilde has been running a Soar Valley Big Book Art Attack which will unveiled on Friday. The library has been buzzing with student enthusiasm for lots of other competitions and most importantly, there’s been lots of activities and discussion surrounding the free £1 books as well as reading itself. Staff have thrown themselves into the event too and dressed up as their favourite book characters.

All students have now been given their £1 book token as part of the World Book Day celebrations. There is an exclusive range of books that have been written especially for WBD and many students can’t decide which one they want, they’re all so good. So that parents can help them to make their decision, we’ve included a couple of links at the end of this article.

World Book Day is a fantastic event. The charity’s sole mission is to ensure that all children and young people have access to their very own book. We know that encourage young people to read isn’t always an easy task but reading for pleasure has so many different benefits.
