The reading event of the year is fast approaching: World Book Day. Created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day is currently celebrated by over 100 countries around the world. Each year authors and publishers work hard to spread the values of reading, particularly with the younger generation. This is a fantastic opportunity for KS3 classes. Etone College staff and pupils intend to observe the day with the full credit it deserves with some fantastic activities.
On Thursday 2nd March 2023 we will be celebrating World Book Day.
During World Book Day pupils will get the opportunity to be part of at a fun quiz, guessing who is behind the book where they will need to use their best inference and communication skills to work out which member of staff is behind the book.
Alongside World Book Day, each tutor group in KS3 has been challenged to see how many texts they can read from around the world. They will be travelling around the world through a variety of texts; from America, Asia, Europe, England and Australia. This will hopefully give pupils a wider understanding of different countries. They can do this through a variety of texts (and audio books!).
We can’t wait to hear about all the fantastic texts that KS3 have been reading!
