Bradford Academy celebrated their love of literacy yesterday by taking part in World Book Day.
Every year on the first Thursday of March, World Book Day takes place across schools in the UK and Ireland. World Book Day encourages children to explore and enjoy reading books and provide them with the opportunity to own a book of their own.
This year, members of staff across the school dressed up as book characters and learners were encouraged to take part in a quiz where they had to guess who they were meant to be. Staff also began each lesson with a focus on either their favourite book or the book they were currently reading.
Zoe Brearton, lead practitioner of literacy, commented: “World Book Day is a brilliant chance to celebrate a wide variety of literature and get learners talking about it. It’s so important for young people to read and so this is just one of the many strategies we use to help them become engaged.”
