We celebrated World Book Day and Literacy as our SMSC Theme of the Week. Mrs Maw delivered assemblies about the importance of reading and how reading can open up new doors and new opportunities and really is the key to success. During Form Activities students had the opportunity to find out more about the joy of reading and how reading can help to build vocabulary and imagination, learn about new people, places and things and can make you feel happy, sad, excited or inspired. They also had a chance to take part in a quiz where they had to guess which of their tutors were hiding behind their favourite childhood books.
An amazing effort was once again made by our ever-enthusiastic English department and Reading Suite staff members who came to school dressed as one of their favourite characters from a book in honour of World Book Day.
