Mulberry Academy Shoreditch will be joining in the world wide celebration of books and reading during World Book Week taking place from Monday 27th February to Friday 3rd March 2017. The theme of our book week will be magical creatures. The main aim of World Book Week at the academy is to encourage students to explore the pleasure of reading through activities including ‘drop everything and read’, and share with student’s book-related activities and puzzles during break time.

‘Jackanory’ will take place every lunch time with a member of staff reading extracts from one of their favourite books and discussing the book in detail. Students will also get an opportunity to meet with an upcoming author and complete a workshop with them.

We will end World Book Week with students having an opportunity to dress up to bring their favourite book character to life. There will be a competition for students to display the imaginative characters they recreated, as well as speeches to help develop confidence and public speaking skills. Staff will also participate in this event making it more enjoyable and fun. We hope this week will help encourage students to read more actively and with interest.
