Bromsgrove Book Week ! Febraury 27th – March 2nd

To mark this important date in our calendar, The English Department is happy to announce that our students will be taking part in a number of fun and interesting activities both in and out of school.

Educational visits – Years 7 & 8 have already visited the historic Nelson Hayes Library on Suriwong Road in Bangkok . This was an excellent opportunity to enhance their library and research skills and learn about our local literacy resources.

Year 9 will be visiting the headquarters of the Bangkok Post and also visiting the new printing press at Bang Na where they have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge about how newspapers are published.

Spelling Bee – Students represent their Houses in the Spelling Bee. This is a rigorous and fun examination of their spelling capability and vocabulary. Preliminary stages will be in tutor group time. The grueling finals will be conducted in House Assembly.

Key Stage 3 and 4 students will be able to show their creative writing skills in a Poetry Writing Competition. There will also be a Readathon on Wednesday with classes performing their poetry in the atrium

Book Review – A number of students have written a review of their favourite books outlining the joys of literature. These will be displayed on our notice boards for all to see. Other students can try to guess which book has been chosen by each student.

Book Fair – We will also have two Book Fairs throughout the week, with many stimulating bargains to be had.
