During May, we launched a competition across the school to foster a love of reading and the results were phenomenal! Each form in the secondary school was given the challenge of designing and producing a book cover as a team project, for their class door. They were assessed on their creativity, teamwork and accuracy of content of the story. Select year 13 Art and Literature students and 2 teachers had to score each door and the finalists were awarded with certificates and chocolates. The form who won first place were also presented with a medal to celebrate this wonderful creation.
7G (1st place winners) were seen working hard on their door cover ´How to train your dragon´ and this is what their form tutor, Mr Pyott observed : “The development of this project has been a great learning experience for the group. By bringing to fruition a full-blown project that started out as just a spark, they have not only gained valuable team building and project management skills, but they have also had a great time in the process. It has been a privilege to witness it.”
Primary also took part in the door competition to showcase the book the groups were reading in class and this was such a warm way to encourage them to enjoy the magic world of books. Such vibrant door displays not only demonstrated just how well teams worked together on this, but also made the school look like a wonderful library. We are confident it has inspired our students to read!
