Book Week at Senior School

Book Week had a distinctly mysterious tone in the Senior School this November. We hosted a mock murder mystery in the library, festooning the library with clues and tasking our students with reading, recording and triangulating the clues in order to determine who had murdered our new Assistant Librarian – Miss Terry (get it?). The highest percentage of correct guesses came from the Romans, so we congratulated them on their amazing detective skills by awarding them with a certificate in our Book Week assembly.

Throughout Book Week, the students had multiple opportunities to engage in a range of reading-related activities and competitions. They designed alternative covers for their favourite books; they voted for BSN’s top five favourite books; and, of course, they got to dress as their favourite book characters! They also got to meet the amazing author and illustrator, Martin Chatterton – and browse Obido’s book selection in our atrium pop-up bookstore!

All in all, it was an excellent celebration of reading, but the true measure of its success is whether you see your son or daughter reading a book. During our closing assembly, I recommended a host of mystery books to the students from our library and I hope that you see your children take a renewed interest in reading in English every night before bedtime! Twenty minutes of enjoyable reading per night is worth its weight in words!
