Host of activities take place for World Book Day

Staff and pupils at Rydal Penrhos lent their support to a global scheme implemented to highlight the importance of reading.

The school held a number of different activities as part of World Book Day on Thursday, March 1, which saw plenty going on thanks to the tremendous work by the English and Drama departments.

A host of staff dressed up as their favourite fictional character to mark the occasion, and pupils took part in a competition to guess each one correctly in the hope of gaining a special prize.

Reading themed quizzes were a prominent part of lessons throughout the day, and different year groups also downed tools for a short period to focus on their current book of choice.

Hidden opening lines of books were also scattered around the school, and there was also a #Shelfie competition for staff, who sent in pictures of their bookshelves at home.

English and Drama teacher Fiona Earle, said: “It was another hugely successful World Book Day at Rydal Penrhos, which is something every member of the school community looks forward to immensely.

“The importance of reading at a high level cannot be underestimated in terms of a child’s overall learning, and events such as this are a great way to highlight this while also having some fun in the process.”
