World Book Day 2020

The Schools were buzzing with literary activities on Thursday 5 March for World Book Day.

The Junior School took a physical approach to literacy, with every pupil participating in dances inspired by the books 'The Lorax' and 'Where the Wild Things Are'. Dance workshops run by the Sports department created an electric atmosphere in the chapel throughout the day for the 600+ pupils in Nursery to Year 6. See the highlight videos on Facebook.

The afternoon took an exciting turn with a special visit from Postman Martin. Each class had been tasked with decorating a wooden postbox linked to a book or author, and letters were written to the authors inviting them to attend our next Literature Festival in March 2021. After making sure all of the letters had been posted into the post boxes, Postman Martin took them away for the next stage of their journey.

The College Library had an equally busy day. First and Second Year students' excellent knowledge of books shone through as they went head to head in a literary inspired quiz, driven by the prospect of a coveted Easter egg prize. Each pupil was also challenged with making a book mark, with the winners from each class going on to the final judgement by Mr Lawrence, the English Library Representative. Well done to Georgia, Ollie, Jake and Charlotte for their designs.
