Opening a new chapter on World Book Day 2020  for Stokesley School

The Open Learning Centre at Stokesley School hosted a range of competitions and activities to celebrate the importance of World Book Day. The special day was celebrated by completing activities ‘all things bookish’ which aimed to inspire students to read and explore their love of books.

Instead of asking pupils to traditionally ‘dress up’, the Open Learning Centre at the school ran a ‘make a mask’ competition – where students produced some magnificent designs. Furthermore, these fabulous masks were modelled and paraded in the Open Learning Centre at break time. The competition winners were Mille, with a fantastic homemade bear design; Timmy, who produced an ingenious tupperware and tinfoil cyberman mask and Aqilah with her artistic Mardi Grass style mask.

Students at Stokesley also tested their literary knowledge with a quiz of 100 question television competition, participated in ‘The Novel Treasure Hunt’, which involved students hunting for book covers scattered around Stokesley School and produced a wonderful literary array of entries for the Acrostic Poem Competition.

Finally, students also participated the usual range of literary paraphernalia which included a number of word puzzles; their favourite character glass painting and of course, relaxing with a good book in Stokesley’s Open Learning Centre.

World Book Day went down a treat at Stokesley School, and pupils were actively involved in celebrating the day at school. Hopefully next year, the school can continue with different ideas to celebrate World Book Day and the pupils keep on actively reading and educating themselves through books.
