What a day we had on Friday for World Book Day!

World Book Day is such an important day to celebrate reading (and writing!) for pleasure. Functional Skills coordinator Leah Bamford organised activities galore to make reading and storytelling accessible and exciting. We encouraged students to develop their skills and promote a life-long habit that improves wellbeing and supports skills for employment.

Learners from different pathways across college were invited to participate in World Book Day activities. Many students and members of staff came in fancy dress and brought their favourite book with them to show us.

Students were asked to use their imagination and creativity to ‘Make a Story’ in small groups. They were then able to bring their story to life with the use of our green screen, some digital magic, and imaginative backdrops based on their story content.

Local poet and author Jan Hedger, who is an industry champion at College, came in to judge the ‘Make a Story’ competition, and our ever popular ‘Design your Own Book Cover’ competition. Watch this space to find out our winners, soon!
