Book Bingo to Mark World Book Day 2017
To mark World Book Day 2017, teachers brought in their favourite books (see picture) and took part in Book Bingo.
Students had a grid with 20 teachers’ names on it. They had to find all the teachers during the day and discover the title of that teacher's favourite book, and tell them about theirs too.
Eighty students took part with 30 completing the entire grid. The winner (following a tie-break that involved writing a book review) was Jacob, Year 7. He wins a £10 Amazon voucher.
Story for a day
Teachers also read a story to the students throughout the day, with one instalment read in each lesson. And at lunchtime we held an online book quiz in the library. Fourteen students entered. The winners were Arthur and Toby and the runners up were Vinoth and Nabil, all from Year 8. They each win a £10 Amazon voucher.
Students have also been logging on to our relaunched Reading Cloud – the online library portal accessible through the school website where students can check their library accounts, look up and reserve books, download ebooks, write reviews, watch author videos and find suggestions for what to read next.
Seventy four students entered a competition to write a book review on the Reading Cloud for World Book Day and we are currently displaying the shortlist of the best 12 in the library alongside the books they reviewed. Students are currently voting for the winner, based on which review most makes them want to read the book.
