World Book Day 2019

Posted on Mar 13, 2019

This year’s World Book Day took place on Thursday 7th March and Kingsmead teachers recognised the day by bringing the theme of books and reading into their lessons in a variety of ways. Some teachers chose to post an inspirational quote about books in their room/talk to their students about their favourite book, while others played the Great Big Book quiz in registration time. Mrs Freeman’s Year 7 MFL class listened to “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” in German for "Welttag des Buches", ie World Book Day.

In celebration of books Kingsmead has also launched a Kingsmead Mastermind Literature Competition, open to all year groups. Students are currently enrolling their teams and specialist subjects to compete in the challenge taking place later this term.

All students receive a £1 book token from World Book Day to spend on/put towards a book. For more information visit
