Congratulations to Miss Coupe and 7G who won out Attendance Award last half-term. The tutor group had the best attendance in year 7 and were rewarded with snacks and drinks at break-time.
World Book Day takes place this year on Thursday 5th March.
World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
Thanks to the generosity of National Book Tokens Ltd, publishers and booksellers millions of book vouchers will be to children and young people (more than 14 million, in fact: that’s one for nearly every child aged under eighteen in the country). They can take their voucher to a local bookseller and can use it to pick one of TEN (exclusive, new and completely free) books. Or, if they’d rather, they can use it to get £1 off any book or audiobook costing over £2.99 at a participating bookshop or book club.
To celebrate World Book Day, we will also be introducing a Drop Everything and Read activity, whereby the school bell will ring each day and every student and member of staff will stop what they are doing and read for fifteen minutes! Each student in Kingsmeadow will also receive a World Book Day token.
