World Book Day: Reading is Power

Thursday 7th March was World Book Day and the theme at Wykham Park Academy was Reading is Power. In assembly, the students have been hearing suggestions for powerful books, provided by World Book Day and the staff at school. Our Librarian read them an extract from A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, a very moving and powerful book, which is now in very high demand! Even more new books are on display in the library ready to be borrowed.

Students have also been given tokens which can be exchanged at most large book stores for a free World Book Day book.


Staff dressed up as book characters to celebrate the day, can you name them all?
