Book Week

Book Week 26 Feb- 2 March 2018

We had a lively 2018 Book Week, focusing on the theme of ‘Adventure Fiction’ and ‘Exploration’.  There has been a resurgence of interest in ‘Adventure Fiction’ with the presence of award-winning academic Katherine Rundell publishing four titles in recent years. She has been named as the ‘Queen of the awfully big adventure’.

Book Week was launched at Mondays assembly with Mrs Bainbridge presenting an overview of Katherine Rundell’s ‘Adventure’ books and also for the senior girls a synopsis of the classic adventure story ‘Gulliver’s Travels’.

On World Book Day, Thursday 11th March we held our annual Book Character Fancy Dress day, where girls and staff dressed up as their favourite book characters, myself being Ann Bancroft, the first woman to lead an all-female team across the Arctic.
