Worth has been sending out a powerful and positive message about reading and writing with a number of initiatives to celebrate World Book Day.

Leading up to World Book Day today, the week began with a ‘Book Week’ assembly where members of the Worth Literary Society spoke about what they do and their enjoyment of reading. Then yesterday pupils in Years 7 and 8 were encouraged to dress up for their online lessons as their favourite literary characters. Among the outfits were Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Oliver Twist, Count Pierre Bezukhov from War and Peace, the Cheshire Cat from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Daisy from the Murder Most Unladylike series.

Our younger pupils have also been asked to take a selfie and photoshop themselves on to their bookshelves or surrounded with their favourite books. Prizes are being awarded for the best picture.

World Book Day is an annual celebration in more than 100 countries across the world promoting reading and writing.
