World Book Day, 2017

Romance, Lost Souls and Some Very Peculiar Costumes!
“Do you know the feeling when you start reading a new book before the membrane of the last one has had time to close behind you? You leave the previous book with ideas and themes -- characters even -- caught in the fibres of your clothes, and when you open the new book, they are still with you.” (The Thirteenth Tale, Diane Setterfield).
It was fantastic to see some of our staff members mark the 20th anniversary of World Book Day (on Thurs 2nd March) by dressing up for the occasion. On the English corridor alone, there were two Gothic heroines, a Lost Boy, a Viking and an enormous crocodile!

Everyone knows that dressing up can be fun: World Book Day has become an essential anniversary in the school calendar to promote the love of reading. The new GCSE exams require students to read a wider range of texts than ever before. In a world of social media, reading has become lost to many of our students. We hope that World Book Day inspired our students at Bradon Forest -  by showing them the range of characters that are just the turn of a page away: many of our students certainly seemed to enjoy tracking down the characters and trying to identify them!
