Keen readers at Winmarleigh School celebrated World Book Day with a whole host of activities...including finding the most unusual place to read a book.

Teacher Clare Wright thanked the school’s PFA (Parents and Friends Association) members for their enthusiastic support which ensured the day was a success.

She said: “Thanks to our hard working PFA, pupils at Winmarleigh School were able to celebrate World Book Day with a whole host of activities! Pupils rotated around a carousel of activities such as an author quiz, a book tombola, creating character profiles, buddy reading and using their creative skills to make a bookmark.”

The PFA also organised the competition to find the most unusual place to read a book.

She reported: “With so many weird and wonderful photographs sent in, the PFA had a hard job choosing the winner! Well done to Thomas Whitaker (Year 2) for winning the competition with his imaginative photograph!”

Thomas’s secret reading location was none other than the smallest room in the house. Meanwhile other pupils submitted photos showing themselves reading in a dentist’s chair, sitting on a cow, reading to a cow and in a tractor, as well as sitting on a letter box.
