A love of reading on World
Book Day at GTS
Did you meet Biggles, Nancy Drew, Jane Eyre, Ruby
Redfort or Skulduggery Pleasant on the way to school
today? They were all invited to GTS on World Book Day
and were joined by Mary Poppins, Geek Girl, Katniss
Everdeen, Farm Boy, The Thief Lord and many other book
characters, when students and staff dressed up on World
Book Day.
“We usually learn to enjoy reading and improve by
reading aloud and sharing stories. This is why our Reading
Club every morning at GTS and regular reading habits are
vital for emerging readers.
It is known that independent reading is the most
important indicator of future success, so we are offering
students the skills to take their reading to the
next level. Our school uses a reading programme called
Renaissance Learning Accelerated Reader which helps to
track improvement with quizzes and rewards. Our aim is
for a love of reading!”
Ruth Ward, Library Manager
