World Book Day | 5th March 2020

Today Smithills School celebrated World Book Day.


We started the day with Breakfast in the Library for top borrowers across Years 7, 8 and 9 and shared an extract from Charlotte’s Web which was our Library theme.

Watch our promotional film of the event below.

We ran a Book Café for one lesson, with pupils trying a variety of genres, choosing Horror as their favourite. At lunchtime, pupils were challenged with a scavenger hunt to work out clues in order to find book villains.


For Smithills, the day is all about the magic that books bring into our lives. We hope you too had a happy World Book Day and many enjoyable happy ever afters. Don't forget to read something you love today!
