Library lessons were very different this year as timetabled classes were given research tasks based on the last 25 years. Working in teams, pupils were given an image of a book and firstly had to research when this was first published. This was then further followed by attempts to ‘read my mind’ and research books, TV, films and national news from that year which was a match to Miss Elliott. All students thoroughly enjoyed the research task and were rewarded with treats, stationery and extra World Book Day tokens for their matches!
After college, the library was full of students who joined in with the 25th anniversary celebrations with a special cake, snacks and drinks and a hunt for hidden extra World Book Day tokens in the library. Pupils excitedly collected these and have been redeeming their tokens for free books in participating local book stores. All students at Etone College also received a token to exchange for a free book.
The challenge in the library involved props which had a connection to book characters and with the help of a written clue attached, students had 25 props to guess. Students worked together in teams, determined to answer at least twenty to ensure they won a prize for their efforts. Eighteen students won stationery sets, mini board games, sweets, chocolate, rubix cubes and various books.
