World Book Day 2020

The event was part of Bosco Book Week and students were fortunate enough to participate in a range of cross curricular activities based on the life and works of Beatrix Potter.

All the activities built on students’ reading skills and promoted reading for pleasure. Throughout the week students enjoyed visiting the LRC to participate in various activities.

Two activities which shone through involved students creating their own acrostic poems, and a special arts and craft session during which students used Rabbit templates to design their own Peter Rabbit models. Students produced some wonderful work which will now be displayed as a collage in our LRC.

On the day there were some fantastic costumes as Year 7 students dressed up as their favourite book characters. This proved to be difficult for the form tutors as they had to quickly decide on just three students in their form who would be awarded with a prize. We were delighted to give away over thirty prizes and certificates during the week as so many students involved themselves in the activities. In addition, each student received a free book token which allowed them to visit any of their favourite bookshops and use the token to obtain £1 off any book.

Many of our staff, from departments also chose to dress up. Miss Markey who dressed up as Gangster Granny was crowned the overall winner and our Modern Language Department were the overall department winners. With such creative costumes we are already eagerly awaiting staff’s costumes for next year.
