As with everything in the last 12 months World Book Day looked a bit different this year but thanks to everyone who entered the Pupil Librarians’ World Book Day Competition. The variety of submissions really surprised and delighted us. From fan fiction, to songs, dressing up and food entries, we loved them all.
The Year 9 Pupil Librarians met the day after World Book Day (on Teams naturally) and voted on their favourites. It was a difficult choice given that the standard of entry was really high but the winner was clear. Congratulations to Advika W. (7-6), your picture was beautifully executed and perfectly captures the mood of the time.
I have circulated an electronic version of the £1 World Book Day book token on Teams but when we get back in the library, if you’d prefer, you can come and collect a paper token. We also have a limited number of the £1 World Book Day books to buy with your token. You can use the token after the expiry date advertised so you’ll be able to use it when the shops reopen.
Take a look at all the entries. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did:
Schools, libraries, and bookshops all celebrated the 21st World Book Day on March 1st. Here at AGGS staff shared their favourite stories with pupils during a special lunchtime book reading session. Thanks to Mrs Clark, Mr Lovelady, Mrs Cleary, Mr England and Mr Hodgson for dazzling us with a diverse selection of novels and poems.
