World Book Day Celebrations

Posted on March 7, 2017


We celebrated World Book Day in style this year with numerous activities going on throughout the school. Highlights included amazing fancy dress in the Pre-Prep and Junior School, teachers and students reading excerpts from their favourite books in assembly, form room doors decorated as book covers and a Winnie the Pooh treasure hunt!

We were also lucky enough to be visited by local author, Sandra Greaves, who gave a fascinating talk about her book, The Skull in the Wood. This is a contemporary ghost story set on Dartmoor, and not for the faint-hearted!

Sandra gave two talks, to Upper 3 and Lower 4, and to Years 5 and 6; both sessions were received with rapt attention, and at some points you could have heard a pin drop. We are very grateful to Sandra Greaves and to the authors-in-schools team at Crediton Community Bookshop who arranged the visit.
