World Book Day

We have had a fantastic World Book Day! As staff, we all enjoyed dressing up and I thoroughly enjoyed being tiger for as day! Many thanks to all of you who helped your children look amazing! The children had a great time.

A highlight was the older children reading with the younger members of the school. This was a lovely aspect of our recent Reading Festival and we were delighted to repeat it today. The book swap was also very popular.

It was lovely to see so many of you sharing whole class guided reading and writing session with your children this afternoon. As you are aware, the children focussed on writing about their memories today based on the book ‘The Match Box Diary’. For those of you who were not able to come in, the book is about an old man who has kept lots of memories in matchboxes over the years and he shares them with his great granddaughter. Thank you to everyone who filled the matchboxes we sent home; there were some very inventive ideas and some lovely memories!
