Over 200 pupils from St Swithun’s Prep School dressed up and took part in activities to celebrate World Book Day.
Pupils were welcomed with a book themed assembly. Staff joined in on the fun too, they dressed as crayons from the book The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers.
Everyone was encouraged to take part in the Readathon, to help provide books to children in hospitals across the UK.
Year 2 even took a trip to Waterstones!
St Swithun’s prep head Mr Jonathan Brough said: ‘A love and passion for reading are some of the most important gifts we can give to our students for any number of reasons including their all-round wellbeing and their academic success both now and in the future. We believe in creating an environment where children love to learn, and learn to meet life’s challenges head on. As part of that, we work hard to improve the diversity of literature in the children’s diet by encouraging them to try out new books and discover new authors. World Book Day is the perfect chance to do this.’
