World Book Day 2020

Wow what a successful day World Book Day 2020 was.

The children very much enjoyed coming to school in their pyjamas for our theme the "big bedtime read" and taking part in a number of reading related activities. They particularly enjoyed reading with friends and sibling in other classes. And the teachers enjoyed reading to different classes.

Thank you to those parents who attended our "share a story" time and we hope you found the reading presentation given by Mr Gallagher useful. If you were unable to attend, please see the presentation below.
