Children at John Gray High School are using old style lettering like the scribes who hand wrote Bibles to make bookmarks.

The youngsters are taking part in the activities to celebrate Reading Week at the school.

Teacher Wendy Cumberbatch said: “We have been doing a lot of exciting activities, to really immerse the kids into reading and thinking, and listening and speaking.

“For example, we had a Word of the Week competition and the Poetry Slam competition, where the kids have composed their own raps.”
