World Book Day by Ellie Thompson

Thursday 7th March was World Book Day and many of the teachers celebrated it by dressing up as famous characters from books for students to try to identify. It created a great atmosphere in the school as students were having fun looking out for teachers that had dressed up and identifying them as well as having them teaching their lessons. What better way to learn about Macbeth than have Lady Macbeth teach you? For the last lesson of the day every student got to read for an hour which is known as DEAR day (Drop Everything And Read). A couple of times a term we do this which improves reading ability across the school. As well as this the library had “Book Tasting” which is where the librarians put out menus on the table as well as table cloths so that the library felt like a restaurant. Students then had the chance to find the flavour that they liked best!
