The English department with Year 7 during the World Book Day awards assembly.
The 20th anniversary of World Book Day took place on Thursday, and Marden were active participants as usual. Staff, Year 7 and Year 8 students were invited to dress as a literary character for the day. There was also a lunchtime quiz and Key Stage 3 students took part in literary activities and writing competitions with the English department all day.
In total, £200.30 was raised for BOOK AID. Well done to everyone who took part.
In the last week of term before Christmas, Year 7 students took part in an afternoon celebrating Literary Heritage. They were briefed to dress up as famous literary characters from five selected authors for a special event, in which they stayed in character all afternoon and taught each other what they had learned from their research and reading.
