We celebrated World Book Day with a number of events taking place across the day including assemblies, lesson starters, a display showing what books staff are currently reading and a visit from Year 5 pupils from Reaside Academy. The Year 5 pupils read in small groups led by Balaam Wood pupils in Year 7 (some of whom have previously attended Reaside!) This was then followed by one of our very gifted Year 10 pupils, Ethan, who read an extract from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to the whole group before Mr McGarvey drew our special raffle and revealed the winner of a £10.00 book voucher for Waterstones. Coincidentally, the winner from Reaside Academy had dressed up as Alice from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ especially for World Book Day! A really good afternoon was had by all and we thank both the pupils and staff from Reaside Academy who attended. Here are a few highlights of our World Book Day:
