World Book Day at Priory School

Posted on 11th Mar 2024 in School News, Literature

Priory School of Our Lady of Walsingham celebrated World Book Day in style this year! Pupils and staff arrived at school dressed as their favourite book characters from A Christmas Carol, Willy Wonka, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Dracula, Rapunzel, Peter Pan, 101 Dalmatians and many more. 

In the weeks running up to 7 March, the school held a World Book Day assembly and published on its social media pages pictures of staff and their favourite reads. To encourage reading for pleasure and to engender a lifelong love of reading, every lesson on the 7 March, regardless of subject and pupil age, began with the class teacher reading several chapters from a carefully selected novel. 

Mr DEJJ Lloyd, Principal, stated: “Everyone had great fun dressing up, whilst enjoying the simple pleasure of beginning every lesson with the next few chapters from an age-appropriate book”.
