World Book Day

world_book_dayThursday 5th March was quite a busy day at Tabor Academy as it was World Book Day. English staff read out extracts from books, such as The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Rumplestiltskin, during lessons and many students said they hadn’t been read to since they were in primary school!

The Library had a ‘Word Wall’ where students wrote what reading meant to them on a Post-It note and stuck it to the wall. At the end of the day we had a very colourful area.
Throughout the day we had a ‘Treasure Trail’ where students had to unravel clues that were scattered around the Library. All the answers were famous authors. Even some of teachers tried their luck but the eventual winners, with full marks, were Esme Scott, 7FRE, and a joint offering from Aimee Groves, 8REA, and Collette Fray, 8BUR.

Our main Library competition for World Book Day is entitled ‘New Beginning’ and can be portrayed in several different ways; either a short story (500 words or less), a poem, a drawing or a photo. The entries must be handed in to Mrs Aves by the closing date of Wednesday 25th March and the winner will receive a Kindle. Good Luck. Mrs Aves, Library Manager
