08 Mar World Book Day
World Book Day
Thursday 7th March was WBD. The main aim of the day is to encourage children of all ages to explore and encourage the pleasure of reading. The day is acknowledged in over one hundred countries and many schools
including ours here at JRCS.
Our school held an all-day reading marathon. Every 15 minutes throughout the school day a different student would read. To make it more fun and to encourage students to take part, the reading marathon was set-up on a staged area where a camping theme was created, complete with a tent, camping chairs, (mock) fire and even trees and leaves.
Many students wanted to take part and for each lucky student that did participate they each received a personalised World Book Day certificate and bookmark.
It was a great day and the students really did enjoy keeping the reading going.

Many thanks to everyone involved.
