World Book Day on Thursday the 3rd of March gave Farringdon Community Academy students the chance to portray themselves as a book or film character of their choice. The three students which were thought to be the best dressed where given a small prize. World Book Day has been shown to give chances to children in less privileged areas regarding education in literacy. Due to this, each student was asked to donate one pound towards charities which specialised in education through reading if they came to school in non-uniform attire.
The winners of the world book day competition were Lucy, who came third as a minion, Emily, who was Evie from ‘Username: Evie’ by Joe Sugg, and Jordie, who came first as a purple minion.
There was also a 25 Question Book Quiz produced by Miss Hughes, where the winners received a 2016 Guinness World Record Book.
The students could also design a book token in an official competition and they could also write a short story as well as other activities throughout the day.
