Welcome to The Sutton Academy
World Book Day
This year we celebrated the 20th anniversary of World Book Day by having lessons dedicated to the many talented writers and wonderful stories that have been published around the world. World Book day is the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
Literacy and reading is the most important part of our work at The Sutton Academy; we actively encourage and support all our students to expand their horizons, learn new skills, and most importantly discover the joy of reading. It helps students develop their writing, analytical skills and personal relationships with others.
Members of staff across the Academy became their favourite fictional characters to enchant the students - and make the fictional world of writing real! We awarded prizes to Miss Tomlinson, Mr Griffin and Mr Tutty for their exceptional efforts. Mr Griffin became Spider Man - swinging in and out of classrooms announcing "Read dudes - it's cool!"
Next year we will make World Book Day even more exciting! Thank you to everyone involved and here's to 2018!
