World Book Day (4th March 2021) is an important day for us at Barr Beacon School because we can share with our pupils a love of reading. Reading is a great way to relax, and it has many benefits including: improved memory, better vocabulary and increased focus. We’ll be celebrating through a series of virtual challenges and discussions about what we like to read. At the beginning of the week, pupils will be guessing which Barr Beacon celebrity is reading to them in The Masked Reader, and on Thursday pupils will be taking part in a Book Jacket Design Competition. Check out our Twitter to see our #ShareYourShelfie images and have a look at some staff bookshelves.
