A World Book Day like no other and we were not going to stop celebrating, just because we were not in school!
Our entire school community took part in listening and reading two short stories to celebrate World Book Day. Throughout the school day, all students read or listened to different sections of Roald Dahl’s classic tale ‘The Landlady’, in all of their lessons, reinforcing the importance of reading across our curriculum.
Teachers dressed up as a book character and pieced together their very own Jackanory style rendition of ‘Oh the places you’ll go’ by Dr Seuss. You can watch this here - https://vimeo.com/518502143/8f9c91be00
Miss Minnigin, who led the event at Aureus this year, said, “With our physical worlds relatively limited at the moment, we thought it would be great to celebrate how reading can be an escape into infinite imaginary worlds.”
“It has been so delightful to celebrate reading with all of our students over World Book Day and wonderful to see staff from across the school supporting this, raising the profile with our students and demonstrating how valued reading is,” added Mrs Clark, English Lead Practitioner.
World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading with a mission to promote reading for pleasure and offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
