College staff dress up for World Book Day

Teachers at Patchway Community College dress up for World Book Day.

World Book Day came to Patchway Community College on Thursday (6th March), with staff dressing up as characters from well-loved books and literature.

Students spent the day excitedly guessing which characters staff were portraying, all watching a video where staff gave literary clues to their role with students submitting as many answers as they could!

The week at the school has been a series of book related events, including a visit from a storyteller and a “Real Men Read” event where male staff, from PE teachers to Technology teachers, Science teachers to Catering teachers, read aloud from their favourite poems and books to watching students. All staff have also posted signs on classroom and office doors advertising what they are reading themselves.

Headteacher Jane Millicent said:

“Reading is so important to students for success in life, and it was wonderful to be able to use World Book Day to celebrate the fun and enjoyment in books with the students, sharing our love for reading with them.”
