Happy World Book Day, Barney!

03 Mar 2022

Prep School has been a hive of activity today as pupils ‘travelled’ ‘Around the World in 80 Books’ to commemorate the 25th anniversary of World Book Day.

Donning Where’s Wally? outfits, as the dressing up theme for the day, Preppies enjoyed a plethora of book-related activities.

In the morning, pupils embarked on a ‘Journey Through Books’ as each class developed a theme into a fun-filled activity related to reading.

Throughout the day, ‘Stop, drop and read’ alerts pinged at unexpected moments prompting children to read a book for a period of five minutes too.

Mrs Robertson, Prep School Deputy Head (i/c Pastoral), also hid a number of ‘Wallies’ around the Prep School site for Preppies to find! If a child spotted a Wally, they received a certificate!

It has been both an entertaining and enriching day at Prep School, and we look forward to celebrating this important initiative for many more years to come.
