World Book Day!


We had a wonderful World Book Day with so many children and adults dressed up as their favourite book character. At one point, I’m sure I saw Miss Trunchbull, the Cat in the Hat and Harry Potter all having lunch together! The children enjoyed a day of exciting reading and writing lessons. KS2 mixed up the classes and worked together to write their own adventure books with a partner from a different class. KS1 found new reading buddies and enjoyed a magical morning of storytelling today from the Freshwater Theatre. Finally, I was treated to a brilliant performance of the Runaway Pancake by the EYFS team who acted out the story for our Nursery and Reception children. The children were enthralled, as was I, and enjoyed every minute. Lastly, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who gave so generously to our fundraising campaign. We will let you know the total collected next week and we will be counting the steps towards our goal on our fundraising thermometer. The Read-a-thon was really successful and the Swap Shop attended by lots of eager readers keen to find a “new” book to read this weekend. Thank you to the PTA for helping with the Swap Shop. – Miss Aldridge
