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.”
