World Book Day 

On World Book Day this week children arrived at school dressed as a character from their favourite book and there was a vast array of colour in school!  It was interesting to see new favourites taking hold this year - 'The Boy in the Dress' by David Walliams was very popular this time. We had a 10am parade in the playground so that everyone could show off their costumes and learn about new characters.  The day was filled with various book related activities including a Spelling Bee and the children chose new books to read from the PTA Book Sale.  

Staff Favourite Books

Miss Glenister has been encouraging the children to guess which are staff's favourite books...
