We Love Reading - World Book Day 2021 Report

Despite functioning primarily as an online academy on the 4th March, our students still received an intense WORD boost on over World Book Day. This was thanks in particular to our fabulous English department and dedicated librarian Ms Kohnen-Zuelzer.

The day opened and closed in Spanish Hogwarts via a bilingual reading of Harry Potter via Miss Smith and Mr Jellis.

Our students were then transported to new reading horizons through the launch of Soros, our online reading programme, and a deeply gratifying reading for pleasure session from the English team.

World Book Day

Mr Walker launched our online vocabulary programme, Bedrock, with Year 10 which was followed by the rather wild “Bedrockathon” interform competition.

To boost the learning further our students went on to create some wonderful poetry for Peckham anthology and our guest visitor from Project Yogi led a reading and yoga session to finish the day mentally and physically nourished.

We really do love reading at Peckham. This could not better illustrated via the statement from Niah, our student head of English below and our own staff’s decision to dress up for World Book Day (pictured above) in a very quiet academy building.


Niah, Year 9 Student Head of English, says...

When my mum and teachers first told me to pick up a book and read, my reaction was ambivalent. I saw no point in reading; books seemed so long and involved challenging vocabulary.

But now I see why.

Reading is something every successful person does. Your vocabulary grows, you learn new words and comprehension skills. I have many books now and I am proud to say that I have read almost all of them. If it wasn't for reading, my academic progress would not have flourish like it has this year.

If you are not an avid read; why not have another go? Get your siblings excited. Dress up as a book character. Rekindle your love of books! Get reading!
