BGS pupils dress up for World Book Day 2019

Bury Grammar School pupils and staff switched normal uniform for fancy dress to celebrate World Book Day 2019 on Thursday.

Kindergarten hosted a 'Secret Storyteller' morning where parents and carers came in to share their favourite books with the children. They also went on a picture hunt to match illustrations to the correct books.

The Infant and Junior Schools held a morning Assembly, which saw reading awards and certificates presented to pupils, and an afternoon Book Oscar Award Ceremony in which certificates were given out for the winners of each Key Stage book vote and the book door competition.

The Girls' Senior School and Sixth Form took part in a World Book Day House Quiz and decorated their form room doors in a competition judged by Head of English (Girls) Miss Elliott.

Senior Boys took part in reading activities in the LRC and had their photos taken with props to illustrate fictional characters.
