Parkside thoroughly enjoyed celebrating annual World Book Day on 7th March 2019. The whole school participated in sharing our love of reading and enthusiasm for books in a variety of different ways during the day. Pupils had great fun dressing up as characters from their favourite stories - we had the widest variety of outfits yet and it provided an excellent opportunity to talk about why the characters were their favourite. In addition, we also held a 'Miniature Book World' competition: pupils were asked to  create a three-dimensional world of a book in a shoebox, but they could not include the title of the book. The entries were outstanding, demonstrating real creativity and imagination.

Finally, our Literacy Leaders helped to organise a cake sale, with book-themed treats on sale, to raise funds for new books for our school library. We were also thrilled to be able to encourage artistic talent from two Year 8 pupils, Madeline Searchfield and Toby Buxton, as they designed beautiful bookmarks which were sold and in high demand during the day.
