This year for World Book Day, the English department at St Peter and St Paul are putting on a variety of activities and competitions to celebrate the world of reading. There will be the reappearance of the Staff Photo and House Championship Story Writing competitions. There will also be an orienteering treasure hunt based on women in literature with exciting prizes to be won! Students are invited to dress up as their favourite character from a novel/graphic novel (costumes must remain appropriate for the school environment). Staff, including all of the English and Performing Arts Departments, will be sporting outfits based on ‘Women in Literature’ and will be ‘on display’ in the library at break and lunchtime.
As World Book Day coincides with Aspire Day this year, we also have the opportunity to do some work with Year 8 throughout the day. They will be creating a novel in their sessions that will be published and turned into an audiobook by members of staff. Overall, we can promise that it will be an active and exciting day!
