World Book Day 5th March 2020 - Thornhill School World Book Day 5th March 2020

Posted by Louise Meah at 3:46PM on 26 February 2020

As a school which exploits every opportunity to promote the joy of reading, we approach World Book Day on Thursday 5th March with much excitement. Posters advertising World Book Day events are going up around school and, our librarian, Mrs Smith, together with her team of student librarians, is extremely busy creating the World Book Day display as well as preparing for our annual Thornhill Scholastic Book Fair.

This year we are participating in the National Literacy Trust’s Sharing a Story for World Book Day project. This means that in lessons on Thursday 5th March a short story will be read in instalments in all lessons, from Maths to PE, with students having to wait until the last lesson of the day to find out how the stories end. Of course we have selected really exciting stories which will ensure that students are kept on the edge of their seats. In addition there will be the usual World Book day quizzes and some unusual word based quizzes being undertaken within the English department, tutor groups and the library, with prizes for the winners.

….On the subject of independent reading, our annual Book fair this year takes place from 24th – 27th March where all of the latest books: both fiction and non fiction, will be on sale. Students wishing to purchase a book will be able to use their World Book Day token (value £1.00) in part payment for the book of their choice. More details will be published nearer to the date.
