World Book Day

Reading for pleasure

Over the last few weeks lots of activities have taken place to promote a love of reading within our students. We rescheduled World Book Day (interrupted by snow) with teachers from a range of subjects dressing up as various characters. A group of teachers also ran through Amesbury town dressed as 'Where's Wally' to collect money for the National Literacy Trust. The research from this group has been used in a series of assemblies to promote reading, with evidence showing that literacy levels correlates with life expectancy. Ultimately, the new GCSE exams rely on a higher reading age than ever before so reading for pleasure in a regular basis is vital to being successful.
