World Book Day Photo Album
Sir William Robertson Academy celebrated World Book Day 2016 in style today with most of the teaching staff dressing as dramatic book characters along with many of the pupils. Activities during the day included reading sections of Roald Dahl’s ‘Man from the South’ at the beginning of each lesson, a fun quiz where pupils had to guess the teacher reading the book at home and a book snap competition. Characters included Skellig from the same titled book, Alice in Wonderland, Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird, Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter, MacBeth, Wally from Where’s Wally and Gangsta Granny.
Winners of Book Quiz in the library at lunch time were Team Einstein – Tom Penneck, Ben Coleman, Ben Ashcroft and Oska Mirfin – all in Year 8. Six teams battled it out! Tom Wilkinson in Year 7 won the best character costume award for his Sherlock Holmes as decided by our Head Boy & Girl, Tom Lane and Libby Arnold. English Teacher, Mrs Ainsley was awarded the best character costume for the witch in Macbeth. The English department were wonderfully dressed in their character costumes and Mrs Barnett dressed as Cruella De Ville from 101 Dalmatians even took her character to the classroom for her English lesson!
