Reading for Pleasure Day

Reading for Pleasure Day

On Thursday 20th November Year 8 students took part in a ‘Reading for Pleasure Day’ designed to encourage and celebrate reading. As well as dressing up as their favourite characters, students took part in a range of stimulating activities including storytelling and role playing to remind them what they love about reading.

At the end of each session, students added their ideas to a reading tree where they wrote their favourite characters on the leaves; memorable events on the twigs; favourite book on the trunk; and favourite quote on the roots.
