A Buzz Around World Book Day
World Book Day created a real buzz this week with various events and activities running. On Tuesday the author and storyteller, Cat Weatherill visited RGS to talk to Year Seven. She spoke about how she found her ideas for her books and about the stages a book goes through before it is printed. The pupils also helped her with ideas for possible future stories and were able to buy her books at a signing session at the end of each lesson.
The Library was inundated with pupils entering the ‘Book in a Bottle’ competition, which had over 200 entries. The shredded text of three popular books was placed in three separate bottles and the challenge was to work out the title and author. The fun was not limited to pupils, as various teachers were also drawn in with varying degrees of success. The winners will be announced next week.
Pupils also brought favourite books in to the Library book swap – recycling in action!
Finally, Waterstones visited the School today bringing a wide selection of titles for pupils to purchase. Staff from the local store set up in Eld Hall and pupils were able to use their World Book Day Vouchers towards a selection of books suitable for all ages and abilities.
