World Book Day

On Thursday 4th March students at Orchard Hill College chose to celebrate World Book Day. Some students did a multi-sensory celebration, where they were transported through a web of literary classics from ‘Moby Dick’, to ‘Space Odyssey’. The books were bought to life via 4D sensory experiences including; smell, touch, sound and visual delights.

Reading for pleasure is at the heart of World Book Day. Some students watched online sessions and learnt more about World Book Day and why it is celebrated.

The celebrations really boosted morale and students were initiating interactions. Kayleigh from VPC said “I would really like to do this again next year, it was lots of fun!”

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
