World Book Day: Drop Everything and Read!
We refused to be thwarted by the snow and re-ran World Book Day this Thursday 8 March. Hundreds of children Dropped Everything And Read at 11.15 and staff from across the school dressed up in a variety of different costumes: Elphaba, the Woman in Black, the Boy with Two Heads, the White Witch, an Oompa Loompa, Stevens the butler and Daisy Buchanan, to name but a few! Students competed to spot all the characters, and staff from the English department delivered assemblies to all the different Houses. In the Prep and Pre-Prep everyone came dressed as a character from a book, following a whole week of bookish activities (creating book nooks, reading in unlikely places, scavenging words and researching their favourite authors). Perhaps the highlight of the day was when our U6 English Literature students went down to the Nursery to read their favourite childhood books to the youngest members of our school community.Back to all news
