At Ashton, we LOVE World Book Day!
World Book Day 2019 (Top)
World Book Day at Ashton is celebrated in style every year, with students in years 7 and 8 invited to dress up, along with staff, as their favourite book character. Each year, the costumes come out in their masses and in true 'Ashton Style' nearly everyone joins in. If fancy dress isn't your thing, that doesn't mean you miss out on this wonderful day as all students in year 7 and 8 participate in reading during lessons for the whole day.
World Book Day 2019 (Middle)
We had character creation in science, book reviews in history and spooky stories in computing, to name but a few. The day is rounded off and celebrated with an assembly where we give out prizes for the best costumes, distribute the book tokens to all and enjoy a slide show of the creative things students have been doing that day.
