Melksham students enjoyed a day of celebrations for 2020 World Book Day

The Melksham Oak Community School students were inspired by teachers who also dressed up for the occasion in the theme of famous and classic books.

The activities included finding the titles of favourite books from their teachers, learning lessons from stories including The Ghost of Jacob Marley, Gandalf and The Very Hungry Caterpillar amongst many others.

Students’ imaginations were inspired by literary characters and texts throughout the day. 

Science lessons including themes of from the World of Alice in Wonderland or encountering Mr Hamdia as Life of Pi, blowing his whistle as he rows past in his boat with the tiger on board? 

Students were also able to browse The World Book Day books on a visit to the fantastic library where The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me were available to make reading recommendations and check out books.

Principal Alan Henderson said: “We celebrate reading and aim to inspire students to see books as pleasure. This World Book Day was yet another opportunity for students to learn more about the wonderful literacy and stories available to them.”
