Emily Corley, Librarian at Lightcliffe Academy in Halifax, writes about a very special World Book Day her pupils experienced. She wrote:
On Thursday 5th March year7&8 pupils from Lightcliffe Academy in West Yorkshire celebrated books and reading in style by travelling to Preston for the flagship World Book Day event. There were 5000 students at the event and the atmosphere was electric! We saw 5 authors including Cathy Cassidy who inspired us to use our local library and told us that daydreaming is a great way to come up with stories. Cressida Cowell showed us how to DRAW a dragon and Danny Wallace made us all laugh. As a final treat, all students received a signed copy of a book by their favourite author. It was definitely worth the two-hour journey to get there!
What did you do in your school that was special? Let me know and I will either post it here, on Facebook or tweet it. Let’s celebrate all the wonderful work we do!
