World Book Day 2019Posted on: 07/03/2019
World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and most importantly, 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.
The Charles Dickens School World Book Day this year saw Year 7 to 10 students and teachers reading for pleasure in the first 10 minutes of each lesson, where possible, during the day, whatever the lesson subject.
During break and lunch time, students had the opportunity to visit the Learning Resource Centre where Miss Burvill, Director of English, had set up a book swap and book sale. Students were able to bring in old books to swap for a book from a section of the library or buy at a small charge of 20p.
Staff entered the spirit of the day dressing up as characters in books from Dr Seuss to Lewis Carroll.
