World Book Day 7 March 2019
WORLD BOOK DAY Thursday 7th March 2019
There was real buzz surrounding this year's World Book Day here at Portchester Community School. The theme was "Reading is Power". Many lessons were thematic linked to books; there were special English lessons and competitions and teachers appeared to very much enjoy the opportunity to dress up as famous book characters! In addition to this, a selection of Year 9 students did a wonderful job of "sharing a story" with children from the nursery. Finally, there was a special "Drop Everything And Read" session at the end of the day, where students were able to listen to staff reading an extract of David Baddiel's "Head Kid" to them.
All students have been given a World Book Day voucher. This voucher can be exchanged in bookshops and supermarkets for the special £1.00 World Book Day titles or part-exchanged for a more expensive book (£2.99 or more). We will be running a Scholastic book fair from 19th-26th March in the LRC so, if they prefer, students can save their vouchers until then and put it towards a brand new book of their choice.
Keeeep reading! 🙂
