World Book Day 2014

World Book Day was on Thursday 6th March this year. We had a Reading Week for the week, plus staff and pupils talking about the book that changed their life at assemblies. We also participated in Writes of Passage from WBD.com and asked pupils for their favourite books.

Here is our World Book Day video showing how much our pupils love reading.

World Book Day 7th March 2013

We celebrated WBD this year with an exhibition in the library of book sculptures made by S3 under the tuition of Mrs Murdoch. Visitors to the exhibition were asked to vote on their favourite. The winner was Colin McTaggart’s Tank with Rory Parker’s Lost at sea a close second. All the exhibits were much admired by everyone who came to see them.

S1 and S2 had an opportunity in their library periods to view the exhibition, and also to see some of the book trailer videos that Ms Davidson’s S3 English class had made. Martyn Pig by Keiran Madden and Colin McTaggart and Roxy’s Baby by Katie Roberts were the two voted most likely to make you want to read the book.

All pupils received their WBD £1 book vouchers and S1 and S2 received their Accelerated Reader certificates.

World Book Day

Thursday 7th March is World Book Day. As well as £1 book tokens, World Book Day is all about Reading, writing and sharing. Local bookshops will have copies of the special WBD £1 books that you can swop your tokens for.

You can also download a WBD App with stories by famous authors such as Chris Ryan, Dawn Porter, Patrick Ness and Sarah Alderson.

For more inspiration, take a look at Movellas/WBD where you can write stories online and maybe your story will make it into the app, if enough other young people vote for it.

Ask Mrs Bax for your free £1 book token.

Today is World Book Day. Doon Academy’s main activity for WBD this year is  using our book tokens with a Scholastic Book Club, but we might try and have some fun too!

We watched the “Greatest Book Show on Earth” webcast with S1.

The start of the story which the authors were playing consequences with was:

“Norbert had heard of a piggyback , but what on earth was a backypig? “

How would you continue the story?

World Book Day

World Book Day is coming up on 1st March 2012. Pupils at Doon Academy will soon be getting their free £1 book token to spend on either on of the free books or to put towards any book.
