What an amazing day we've had today celebrating World Book Day! It was wonderful to see such a variety of book characters across school, both from children and staff. The theme of World Book Day this year was 'share a story' and the children thoroughly enjoyed participating in a paired reading session with a different year group in school as well as reading with parents and grandparents at the end of the day.
The book and cookie sale was a huge success and we managed to raise a total of £160.00. The contributions for dressing up of £1 are still coming in and I will update you on the final total soon. All of this money will go towards a visiting author or illustrator, which the children love!
I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all the children and staff for their enthusiasm and participation throughout the day and to our parents for their kind book donations and helping with a fantastic costume and finally, I would like to thank our Reading Stars who did a great job helping with the book and cookie sale today- wow it was busy!
