World Book Day


On Thursday 7th March, pupils at Belmont school, joined in the world book day celebrations, by dressing up as their favourite characters from their favourite books. Dining rooms were filled with colour, as pupils ‘rocked’ outfits from ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’, ‘Billionaire boy’, ‘Peter rabbit’ and ‘Holes’, many of which are studied as part of the curriculum. Staff also channelled their ‘craftier’ selves, opting for handmade costumes from the ‘Little Miss’ collection, ‘Little red riding hood’, ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ and ‘Marvel’ to name a few.

Miss Patton had arranged a number of competitions and these included best fancy dress, design a book token, a book related quiz and ‘write your own short story’. The boys showed great willingness to be involved and a healthy sense of competitiveness, in trying to complete the quiz, which required an IQ of about 300 or a decent internet connection.

The winners were:

Best fancy dress—Emmerson Perrin-Walsh (KS3)

Design a book token—James Booth (KS4)

Write a short story—Jack Nesbitt (KS4)

Quiz— Josh Mellor (KS3), Rowan Addison (KS4).
