It is also important to remember that reading doesn’t just apply to English lessons, but is something that should be encouraged in every lesson and at home. Therefore, there were also many activities happening across the school. On Monday and Thursday, students were read an extract of a story in each lesson they had that day, even their Maths and Science lessons! We had form quizzes and competitions happening throughout the week, including a book character costume competition and a teacher matching activity where students had to decide which book character was each teacher’s favourite. The library also ran many exciting activities, including a Harry Potter quiz where Slytherin were crowned the winners, and a Scrabble tournament in which an incredible addition of the word ‘waxy’ saw Kanta in Year 8 crowned the winner!
All round, it was a brilliant week full of fun and excitement. We hope that it has inspired students to read every night as recommended and has proven that reading should never be boring!
