A love of reading on

World Book Day at

Great Torrington School

Posted on: 09/03/2015

Did you meet Biggles, Nancy Drew, Jane Eyre, Ruby Redfort or Skulduggery Pleasant on the way to school today?  They were all invited to Great Torrington on World Book Day and 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
