Book Day

On 23 April we celebrate Book Day and Copyright Day. But do you know why? This day is the anniversary of the death of three important authors around the world: William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. All of them died on 23 April 1616 (although there are some days of difference because some countries followed the Julian calendar and others the Gregorian one). That is the reason why UNESCO chose this day to encourage people to enjoy reading.

We have celebrated it by accomplishing an important challenge: writing poems in English. Very soon we will have a poem reading in our class so that all your classmates can enjoy your marvellous work.

You did a really good job! I hope you had a good time . . . and I can't wait for the reading!
