 ​World Book Day Thursday 1 March 2018​


As part of our ongoing commitment to literacy and encouraging students to read, we are planning an action packed day for World Book Day on Thursday 1 March 2018.​​​​

Through competitions and FROG, students, parents and PGS staff can all be involved!

Throughout the day and the week leading up to​ World Book Day, there are a number of planned activities which everyone can get involved in:

  • Parents and students can write about their favourite book on the World Book Day FROG page
  • Students can create a Roald Dahl themed cake and win a queue jump ticket and a place at the George's Marvellous Medicine table at lunchtime. Two overall winners will win a book of their choice from the Book Fair. Any entries can be taken to Technology on the morning of 28 February
  • Scholastic book fair is in the Library from Friday 23 February until Friday 2 March. Students will need cash to purchase from the Book Fair
  • All students are being encouraged to enter a short piece of creative writing to be published in Penistone Grammar School's first anthology of creative writing, which will be available to purchase from school. Any entries need to be emailed or handed to Miss Demetriou by 28 February
  • Students can vote for the best book themed teachers' fancy dress costume throughout lunchtime on World Book Day
  • All students will hear part of a story in each lesson throughout the day, the final part of which will be read in period five
  • Our Senior leadership team will be discussing their favourite books in assemblies throughout the week
  • The Enterprise department are running a sponsored read - any monies raised will be going to the Penistone Food Bank
  • Twenty terrific reasons to read posters are around school and on FROG and the website for you and your child/children to discuss
