World Book Day
As in previous years, teachers at Sunbury Manor celebrated WBD by introducing students to inspirational books and characters that they might not have heard of. Students took part in a range of new book related games, quizzes, activities and assemblies – all aimed to encourage them to read more and realise the fun they can have with literature.
WBD 2022 also saw the sponsored ‘readathon’ grow in numbers as 115 KS3 students spent the school day reading in the library. Due to the high number of students who took part this year we had to extend the event to the drama room. Together, they raised an incredible £995 which was donated to ‘Read for Good’ who work in hospitals across the UK to make reading accessible and fun for young patients in hospitals across the country.
They sent in this lovely message of thanks:
To the amazing pupils and staff at Sunbury Manor School, thank you so much for running Readathon this year! We hope you enjoyed all of your reading and wanted to say a huge, heartfelt thank you - your reading and raising will help bring the magic of books and stories to children in hospital. You are all amazing!
