Y7 are off on a Readathon!
Students in year seven are currently relishing the opportunity to raise money for Clic Sergeant, Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity and Short Lives by taking part in a sponsored read. Students are currently reading a wide range of literature to develop the breadth of their readership and raise money to provide readers and mobile libraries for children in hospital across the UK. We look forward to seeing the students achieve their targets and raise money for this excellent and worthwhile cause. All sponsorship forms and donations should be taken to student services by the 15th March 2017, and the total of donations will be announced.
World Book Day is a celebration! It is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it is the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 20th year there has been a World Book Day, and on 2rd March children of all ages came together to appreciate reading.
Here at Egglescliffe School we joined in with a whole host of activities
Key Stage 3 Tutor Groups created some brilliant Book Bunting to decorate their classrooms. Each pupil created a book cover which represented a book they wished to recommend to their peers. The winning Tutor Groups were 7NH, 8NG and 9NR.
With their usual flair for going all out, our Science Department was turned into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory while they brewed their potions and created Mini Books in their lessons.
Once again our annual book fair earned the school nearly £500 of free books to add to our library.
In The Library we gave away 450 books for free from the World Book Day range.
'World Book Day saw the collaboration of all year groups at Preston Primary school as they came together for a big World Book Day song of "Interwoven Tapestry". The song depicts the idea of all books creating an interwoven collection of dreams and imagination. All students and staff were in their fantastic book character costumes and the event was led by Miss Bagley from the music department. "I am immensely impressed with the progress that these students have made and the collaboration of all year groups being able to celebrate World Book Day together. It was a brilliant event."
If you would like to hear the song, log into the school website.
Our Annual Lit Quiz took place in the hall and our Y7s were quizzed by Lady Macbeth (aka Mrs Buchan!) on a whole variety of books and genres. The clear winners were students Aysha, Shelly, Ellie and Isaac from 7GR. Congratulations to all who took part.
Students got to laugh and talk with their favourite Book Characters as staff and 6th formers dressed up for the day. In the vote for best costume, students decided Miss Walmsley, dressed as the White Rabbit (Alice in Wonderland) was the winning costume with 32% of the pupils vote
The real purpose of World Book Day. Our get caught reading campaign saw many students enjoying a quiet read throughout the day.
