World Book Day

World Book Day

Goodwin Academy enjoys a day filled with fun literary activities, promoting a passion for reading and a love for all things books!

 

This year, World Book Day celebrates its 25th year, and all 17 schools in our Trust came together to run a number of fun activities for our students.

The students of Goodwin Academy participated in the World Book Day Book Exchange by bringing in a book of their choice to swap with their classmates during tutor time. In addition, a book trolley was available during the lunch break for our students to peruse any additional books donated. Book exchanges are a fantastic occasion to share and discuss literary favourites and encourage peers to discover and try something new.

The school took part in the Trust-wide World Book Day Bingo, where students had the chance to win a family ticket to see a show of their choice at a local theatre. Students were given a sheet of literary clues that they had to solve and complete to win a Golden Ticket. Four students who completed the bingo sheet were randomly selected and entered into the Kent Hub draw to win the theatre trip.

Congratulations to Ivy, who took home the top prize and all our runners up, who were awarded book tokens!

What’s more, staff tutors also read excerpts from their favourite books or recited their much-loved poems during the day.

World Book Day is a wonderful opportunity for people to share their love of reading and promote the pastime of reading for pleasure. The charity aims to ensure that every child and young person has the opportunity to have a book of their own. Their focus is to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them.
