World Book Day 2024

Sue Reed Author Visit

Huge thanks to Sue Reed for visiting QEHS as part of our World Book Day celebrations and Careers’ Week. Sue’s engaging and entertaining talk for a group of Y10 students encompassed her career pathway to writing and becoming an author, how to publish, market and publicise a book, and the economics behind it. The presentation concluded by focusing on witchcraft which is one of the themes of her brilliant novel, ‘The Rewilding of Molly McFlynn’. Students took on the roles of townsfolk of the 1600s, accusing each other of being witches. This exposed the assumptions and judgements that are made about being ‘other’ or different in any way – themes that resonate today.


The World Book Day Bake Off

All students had the opportunity to take part in this challenging baking competition. Many congratulations to Alice A from Year 10, whose ‘Game of Thrones’ cake is winner of QEHS’s first World Book Day Bake-Off!

The Masked Reader

Students were encouraged to guess the member of staff behind the mask. One notable performance was made by ‘The Invisible Man!’
