Book Week (2nd – 6th March)

During this week, children will take part in a range of exciting activities (from quizzes to drama sessions) celebrating the importance of reading and great books and authors.

On World Book Day, Thursday 5th March, children are welcome to dress up as their favourite book character.

At some point during the week, children will be bringing home a voucher to spend in book shops.  Miss Chatfield is looking forward to this week; where we can celebrate great books and authors together.

Many thanks for your support with promoting the love and importance of reading. Please see our website for upcoming workshops.
