Pupils at Two Boats School were bitten by the World Book Day bug on Friday, as the school went on its annual campaign to get kids reading.

 

The day’s festivities included a visit from a local artist; Marie-Anne Dennis, a book swap where students brought in their favourite books to trade and two extracts of alternatives to Romeo and Juliet performed by the students of year 7 – 9. A book speed dating event also took place, in which students discussed their preferences in reading with staff and visiting members of the community. There were guest readers from the community and also a quiz on the teacher’s favourite books. The day concluded with a reading of Madame Doubtfireand a viewing of the film.

 

According to one of the year 7 pupils, Trey Leo, “It was fun and it was better than normal lessons!”

“It was an enjoyable day,” said another pupil, Trevor Low-Hong.

“I think it went off really well,” said Mr Murray-Stringer, English teacher. “I was really proud of Year 7, 8 and 9 for performing so confidently.”

“I enjoyed the play,” said Whitney Arms-Lawrence.  “It was about Romeo and Juliet.”

Primary school students came to school in fancy dress as their favourite book characters.
