World Book Day - March 4th 2021
Well, what a fantastic World Book Day! One that we will never forget, I'm sure.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part and really helped raise the profile of reading across the school. The children who are in school looked fantastic, and there was a real buzz around school. It was so fantastic to see your brilliant costumes at home when we did our live assemblies.
Well done everyone! We hope you had a really great day enjoying your favourite books.
