World-book-day-4.jpgWorld Book Day, the annual celebration of books, authors and illustrators, saw the staff at Saint Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic High School dressing up as a fictional character from one of their favourite childhood books. An opportunity to inspire a love of reading for our students, staff were keen to show the students which books and authors they enjoyed reading when they were younger. Students were clearly impressed by the costume choices, giggling and guessing who the staff had chosen to represent, sparking conversations about literature.

Students also enjoyed completing a literacy based numeracy puzzle during form time, bringing literacy and numeracy skills together. They also had an exciting range of activities to choose from during their English lessons, based on narrative writing and creativity.
