What a fantastic day celebrating reading in all it’s glory. Staff and students got creative with some truly wondrous costumes highlighting their favourite reads.

Some of the reasons why we celebrate World Book Day?

  • Children who own a book are three times more likely to read above age expected level
  • There is a strong correlation between regular reading for pleasure and mental wellbeing
  • Reading improves a child’s empathy skills

What book have you enjoyed reading?  This is what some of our students said during World Book Day Yesterday,

Sanka, year 10 enjoys Macbeth “I find reading peaceful, a way to escape and enjoy learning”

Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman “I like reading because you can escape to a different world” Ez, year 9

Good Omens by Jane Eyre “Reading expands your horizons, allowing you to understand different opinions and become well-rounded.” Rebecca, year 11

Tom, year 10 enjoyed Entangled Life “I find reading calms me down and helps me relax and night, I also find reading fun”

The mission is simple:

To promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.

We love celebrating World Book Day as we recognise that strong literacy improves life chances and reading is a fundamental skill that all of our students need. World Book Day is a great opportunity to share our love of reading with lots of fun activities and dressing up. 

We hope everyone enjoys World Book Day 2024. Miss Sheath, Assistant Headteacher

There’s also a great Einstein quote that we have on our library doors:

“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library,” – Albert Einstein.
