World Book Day - New date - 22nd March 2018
Unfortunately, we needed to postpone WBD which originally was due to take place on 1st March due to the snow days. However, we are delighted to announce we will now be celebrating the occasion on:
Thursday 22nd March – new WBD date at School.
As part of this celebration, we have re-arranged for the author Valerie Bloom to attend. Valerie will be leading an assembly/performance for KS1 and KS2.
We would also love for the children to come to school dressed as their favourite book character for the day and we look forward to see all of the children’s exciting and inspiring outfits and to celebrate our love of reading with the children.
Thank you for your continuing support.
