World Book Day 2016
Taken over by a whole host of famous book characters from around the world!
The de Ferrers Academy was overtaken by a whole host of famous book characters from around the world. Staff and students wore fancy dress clothing as a way of celebrating World Book Day. Students spent 10 minutes of every lesson reading and discussing their favourite books with their teachers and the rest of their class. Furthermore, there was a 'Cupcake Book Swap' for students to swap and share their books whilst enjoying a free cupcake! Other events included a 'Design a Bookmark Competition' and 'The Big Vote: What is de Ferrers' Favourite Book?' Whereby students can vote on their favourite KS3 book.
It was a fantastic event and staff and students will remember this day for years to come!
