On March 7th 2019, we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book character. At the start of the day, we had an assembly about the power of reading and how it can transform and transport you anywhere. Mrs Barker, Mr Lawford, Mrs Baker-Smith and Mr Bebbington read extracts from their favourite books.
During period 5, we had a ‘Drop Everything and Read’ session where everyone in the school read for 30 minutes. The day was really enjoyable and everybody had fun.

World Book Day has been a tremendous success! We have been delighted by the efforts of children and staff to dress up as their favourite book characters and to really engage in the wonderful world of reading and of stories.
From Oompa Loompas, to Alice in Wonderland, to Harry Potter to The Cat in the Hat, the costumes have been superb! Please take some time to look through the photos to see some of the wonderful costumes!
The atmosphere has been fantastic and everyone has been buzzing to share their favourite stories and authors with friends and teachers alike. We really have celebrated the power of reading today! Well done Ferndown Middle! Happy World Book Day 2019!
