A Fantastic Display of Creativity on World Book Day at Lyonsdown!

Lyonsdown spectacularly celebrated World Book Day with an array of captivating outfits. The dedication and creativity of the girls (and teachers) who created these fantastic costumes have made us all proud.

The corridors were filled with a diverse cast of literary figures, from witches and wizards to oompa-loompas and characters from Alice in Wonderland. The girls boldly transformed into characters from beloved tales such as “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” and “Superworm,” among many others.

But the excitement didn’t stop there! We were honoured to welcome Justin Coe, a talented poet, writer, and spoken word theatre creator, to our World Book Day Assembly. Justin, known for his works “The Dictionary of Dads” and “The Magic of Mums,” captivated each year group with his lively readings. Mr. Taylor joined Justin in the Sports Hall for a dynamic session with the Upper School; the girls were in stitches with laughter, fully engaged with Justin’s infectious energy and storytelling.

As if that weren’t enough, our Library was transformed into a Starbooks Cafe, providing a cosy and inviting space for our girls to enjoy their favourite books over an empty cup of tea!

Throughout the day, each year group participated in a hive of literacy activities tailored to their age and interests, fostering a love of reading and storytelling across the School. Today’s festivities beautifully exemplified our commitment to promoting literacy and imagination among our girls.

Thank you to everyone for making World Book Day at Lyonsdown a memorable and magical experience!
