World Book Day

We are looking forward to celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 5th March 2015.  We are planning to dress as our favourite character or bring in our favourite story and prop to share with the class.  Throughout the day some of our older children will prepare and read stories to the pupils from N-P2.  We are also planning a fundraising readathon and aim to read extracts from over 1000 books!  Please look out for more details closer to the day.
