World Book Day 2017 at Penkford!

Date: 26th Apr 2017 @ 8:59am

All students at Penkford celebrated World Book Day this year!

Key Stage 2 had a 'bed time story' afternoon with Mrs Nicholson and Miss Viggers, and Key Stages 3 and 4 all had a special English lesson with Ms Maxwell and Ms Duffy. They took part in a quiz where staff had given themselves a title for their own autobiography, and pupils had to guess who those titles belonged to. They also designed their own autobiography book covers, contributed to a school story, and completed some literary word searches.
