On Thursday 7th March, Wickersley School and Sports College celebrated World Book Day 2019. We had lots of activities going on around school including book themed lessons, a bake sale and decorating book bags.
Form groups throughout the school were invited to decorate their form room doors in the style of their favourite book.
We also had the return of the year 7 and 8 Drama Club, with a World Book Day themed session. Students had to create a 60-second dramatization of their favourite book! Over 50 students attended to celebrate World Book Day through Drama! Students adapted stories such as The Cat in the Hat, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Cinderella and many, many more!
Staff and subject departments got involved by dressing up as there favourite literary characters and were entered into a fancy dress competition voted for by students. The lucky winner was Miss Lindley in English as Cruella de Vil.
Some of our Year 7 students designed their own bookmarks in art lessons inspired by their favourite books.
A fantastic day was had by all and we look forward to celebrating again next year!
