Celebrating World Book Day

The school was buzzing with excitement today as the whole community came together in true
St Dominic’s style and celebrated World Book Day.

Lower and Upper School pupils, students and staff made a huge effort to dress up as book
characters; taking great care to produce impressive costumes which provided a backdrop for
the purpose of World Book Day – reading for pleasure. In the classroom too, pupils and students completed a variety of activities, which included book quizzes and surveys. They also designed and wrote about books which had been read and ones they thought they might like to read in the future.

The maths department went all out and completed angle work on Shakespearean characters in addition to completing activities based on ‘ The Tales of Despereaux’, where they completed tally charts about library books and a variety of other things.
Then there was the impressive interaction between Sixth Form students who read to Lower
School pupils.
A huge thank you to Henry, David, Kaylan, the two Toms, Billy, Jamie, Ollie and Callie, along
with Ben in Year 9, who all gave up their time willingly to entertain, engage and share their love of reading. We were all heartened by the passion these students imparted to the younger pupils and will be something we repeat in the future!

All in all – a spectacular day and proof that, as a school, we truly value reading for enjoyment!

 

My Son has made incredible progress emotionally and applies himself much better academically. The mentoring aspect is key to his progress.
