Don’t Panic It’s Only World Book Day
World Book Day is always a great opportunity to celebrate our love for books and reading.
This year, our focus was on science and science fiction, which was reflected in the creative costumes of teachers. Rona, Year 8, liked Mr Lane’s outfit best because “it was really unique”.
Lots of events gave the day an extra bookish flair including:
- an assembly focused on reading
- special displays
- a whole school reading of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
- "Currently reading” posters
- a bookmark competition
- and a trip to the local bookstore, Review Books
Emily, Year 8, showed ambition and chose the World Book Day Book Think Like a Boss because “it gives young people ideas how to start your own business.”
The highlight of the day was our party in the library, with students from Peckham Primary Free School joining us for a challenging book quiz. Co-operation across all age groups was needed to answer all the questions. Luckily some avid readers were present who knew their facts!
Free books and cupcakes were awarded to the winning teams – and finally everyone just wanted to cuddle up in a cosy corner and read.
