For World Book Day this year, Year 7 and Year 8 Ysgol Bryn Elian students and teachers not only celebrated the day by dressing up as their favourite character from a novel, they also took part in ‘Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover’. All pupils picked a book from the library, and then wrapped the book with paper. A blurb was then written about the book, without disclosing the name of the author or any characters. Each Year 7 and Year 8 chose a book from the blurb alone, which they read. Students then wrote a book review on their selected book to win some book tokens. Hopefully, we have encouraged our students to pick up a book, they might not necessarily have chosen!
