To mark the fact that today is World Book Day the library is running a series of events and competitions.
The winners of the short story competition were announced in assembly this morning with Mollie Waite of 7R and Vicky Coppard of 12T beating off the opposition with their stories, both of which had to begin: ‘It was a normal day at Brooke Weston…’
Librarian Mrs Adams also launched the official World Book Day quiz about children’s literature with prizes for winners from both upper and lower schools. To win the Stig poster, currently on the Top Gear display in the library, simply complete a wordsearch. There will also be anagrams displayed (one per day) on the screens. To be in with a chance of winning just unscramble the letters into an author's name, make a note of as many as you can between now and the end of the competition (in about 20 days' time) and email the answers to Mrs Adams.
There is also a ‘Would Like To Meet’ competition, where students have to identify a character from literature from a series of cryptic clues, similar to a dating advert. All the competitions, except the author anagrams, are available in paper format from the library.
Mrs Adams said: ‘We have got a lot of activities and competitions on at the moment. Thanks to all those who took part in the short story competition which was run by Mr Jones. The recent Book Fair also proved really popular, especially among the Year 7s who stocked up on their reading for the holidays.’
