Dartmouth Academy children learn to love reading in special World Book Day events
Dartmouth Academy pupils have been participating in fun events to celebrate World Book Day on March 7.
Groups from the Academy’s primary phase visited the town’s library in the Flavel Arts Centre, where they learnt about using the library with librarian Liz Wilson before heading off to the Dartmouth Community Bookshop in Higher Street to use their £1 book voucher – given to all primary age children around the country.
Children also gave presentations in the Academy’s Primary Assembly on the day, telling their fellow pupils about their favourite books.
The annual event promotes a love of reading and ties in with the reading buddy schemes running at the academy where members of staff and older students spend time reading with younger learners.

Kate Taylor, Director of Learning, said: “World Book Day is an inspiring and exciting day for the children of Dartmouth Academy. We are using many strategies to promote literacy in and around the Academy, but this helps to bring back a sense of wonder and amazement at good stories and interesting books. We are pleased to work with the wonderful staff at Dartmouth Library and the dedicated and helpful volunteers at the community bookshop – thanks to everyone who helped to make this day such a success.”
