Newsletter 14 – 25th February 2016
World Book Day - Thursday 3rd March
To celebrate World Book Day this year on Thursday 3rd March any child that wants to can dress up as their favourite book character.. Children could also bring their favourite book into school and talk to their class about it and explain why it is their favourite. We will take photos of the children with their books and put them on display around school.
Gareth Baker - Author Visit and Book Signing
As part of World Book Day, author, Gareth Baker, will be coming to school on Friday 4th March 2016 to work with some of our children. After school there will be an opportunity for children to meet Gareth in the Entrance Hall at 3:35 PM and buy one of his books
Where in the world are you reading?
Further to World Book Day, children can take part in our "Where in the world are you reading?" competition. Children can bring in photos of themselves reading in different places (rather than just on the sofa!) for example on holiday, or in the garden, in a playground, up a tree! The ideas are limitless, and the more unusual the better! We will add these photos to our school display. Hand the photo to your child's teacher or to Miss Bore (Literacy Leader).
School Photographs yr 1-6
Reminder - On 2nd March the photographer will be in school taking class and team photographs. Please note that the Foundation Stage will have their photographs taken later in the year.

It's that time of year again! Please could you start collecting your Sainsbury's Active Kids Vouchers and bringing them into school.

The box for the vouchers will be in reception or you can give them to your child's class teacher. Thank you!
