World Book Day 2017

On Thursday 2nd March 2017 we celebrated World Book day.  Many activities were going on including our first Readathon where students were asked to encourage family and friends to sponsor them to read.  The money raised will go direct to the Readathon charity.  The free £1 book tokens and free world book day books were also given out from the library, a bake sale took place in the 6th form area as well as a sweet shop, lots of staff members wore a book themed fancy dress and there was a special world book day menu in the canteen plus competitions and prizes.  We also held a ‘drop everything and read’ across the academy for ten minutes during lesson 4 where the bell rang to alert everyone to pick up a book and read, this included staff as well as students.  There was a wonderful buzz around the academy and everyone enjoyed it
