World Book Day and Literacy Celebrations

World Book Day

On World Book Day, students at Hummersknott celebrated reading with special form time activities, creative lessons in English and reading related activities at break and lunch time. The scavenger hunt of book titles was particularly popular with staff and students alike! Staff also dressed up as book characters to embrace the World Book Day fun!
