Students celebrated World Book Day by creating their own World Book Week. World Book Day is designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.
As part of our commitment to lifelong learning and literacy, Titus Salt School created a World Book Week including:
- student led assemblies focusing on poetry reading and the value of reading;
- a ‘Design a Reading Nook’ Competition where students designed their best place to read with ideas ranging from under the stairs to the garden shed;
- a ‘Design a Front Cover’ competition for our own school anthology (about to be published!);
- the ‘Who Am I?’ challenge that invited students to match teachers with a list of their favourite books; and
- a pop-up book making master class.
Headteacher Ian Morrel said: “We encourage all children to read as part of our commitment to foster a love of reading and learning. We know that children who read more make more progress and get a real sense of fun and enjoyment. At TSS, every day is World Book Day and a big ‘thank you’ to all the staff and students for getting involved and working together.”
