Big Reading Awareness Day
On Thursday 26th April Planets Department held a 'Reading Day'. Guests including Tanya and Anne from Whitehaven Library, Gill Johnston from Morgan Sindall, Elizabeth Atkinson from Sellafield, Fergus Pearson from St Johns Chruch Hensingham, Diane Richardson from Balfour Beatty and Mrs Chambers came into school to share their thoughts and experiences surrounding the importance of reading.
The range of guests ensured students were treated to a rich and varied menu of both fiction and non fiction reading.
Each class moved in a carousel fashion around the guest speakers, there was some excellent questioning from students and the feedback sheets were full of positive comments.
