 World Book Day

 

World Book Day 2023

This year at St John Fisher saw a sea of Where’s Wally? Within the Science Faculty, a Mary Poppins in Geography (Mrs Patel) , some Alice in Wonderland (Mrs Rawat), a Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz (Miss Patel) and a plethora of Harry Potter characters (Mr Sykes, Miss Thornton, Mrs Lewis and Miss Brown). Staff this year went above and beyond, to the extent Cambridge block housed its very own Hogwarts with a potions classroom home to Professor Snape, where many duels took place with Professor McGonagall. Alongside this, students were able to play our very own Masked Reader, where disguised staff read to students excerpts from their favourite books throughout the day. Who knew that Tik-Tok could be useful for creating such an engaging activity for pupils and staff to enjoy.

This year students were emailed their book token so make sure they put it to good use by scanning the QR code.

We look forward to next year where more staff will be donning their costumes and more activities will be in place to continue to foster a love of reading.

Chess club at lunch time: (to be in its own tab with the information and timetables below)

The chess club welcomes new members daily with the opportunity to play chess. Due to its popularity and the demand for Mrs Dyson to buy even more chessboard, there will also be a tournament taking place this half term for students who have signed up in the library.
