World Book Day

Thursday 4th March was World Book Day, a time where we celebrate books and all things reading. At Soar Valley we ran a week of activities, including getting inspiration for our future reads and learning about creative writing in online workshops, and competitions like the Big Book Quiz. One highlight was the house competition, where students were asked to create a scene from a favourite book using only items found in the kitchen.

Author of the I am… Emily Knight books, A. Bello, even recorded a very special author talk for our students. She talked about her writing, what it’s like to become an author, and even offered some advice for budding writers. It’s a fascinating trip inside the mind of an author! Students can access this recording online via the library system.

Congratulations to all the students who took part in World Book Day activities this year. Staff were really impressed with the high quality of your contributions and your enjoyment of reading.
