World Book Day 2015

World Book Day 2015

This year for World Book Day some of our year 7 & year 9 Students bought their favourite book in and read extracts from it to the class, the English dept. all dressed up as a book character and in the library we held a bake sale and raised over £100 for a local charity. 

Every student was given £1 book token and the WBD ‘Design a book token’ competition was also offered to any students wishing to participate. 

A video screen was mounted in the library playing Fantastic Mr Fox through the lunch period.  We also had a book swap party and a book exchange.  200 students were able to use their £1 book token and swap for a WBD free book as well as some bringing in their used books that they were able to swap with another student for something they haven’t read.  Overall there was an excellent buzz around the academy with lots going on.
