World Book Day 2022

Orchards Academy came together as a whole school to celebrate books, reading and stories for World Book Day on Thursday 3rd March 2022.  The English department led the way with our annual Literary Character dress-up transforming from everyday teachers into Lady Macbeth, Where’s Wally, Red Riding Hood to name a few. Students very much enjoyed guessing which characters from literature were represented by these brilliant costumes.

A range of activities took place throughout the day. The students were read parts of a book at the start of each lesson so that by the end of the day they had heard the story in its entirety. Nearly 200 books were redeemed at the Book fair too!

Staff from the whole school (including our fabulous support team!) also got involved in the bookish fun, with students trying to match staff members to book clues as part of a treasure hunt and a Guess the #Shelfie Competition matching book collections with the relevant teacher. These competitions were especially exciting as the prize for each was a £10 amazon voucher!

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this day a success.
