World Book Day

posted 2 Mar 2017, 07:17 by EMMA SHERIDAN
We had a brilliant World Book Day assembly this morning where we launched 2 competitions. The first is for our Y2 - Y6 children and is 
called the Readathon Challenge. Children are challenged to read as much as they can and get sponsored every time they finish a book or a section of a book. Any money raised will go to help children who are in hospital have access to story tellers and books to aid in their recovery. Our school also receives money to spend on books and the chance to win a visit from Julia Donaldson! We also asked all children and staff to take pictures of themselves reading a favourite book in an extreme location! We already have some interesting photographs of Miss Stidwell, Miss Rutherford and Mrs Oswald reading books in funny and unusual locations. Ideas could include reading a book in a den, whilst doing kicky-ups or buried in the sand. The more unusual, the better! We hope the children have fun with this and please remember, a grown up must be with them to take the photograph and make sure everyone is safe.Good luck - the competition ends on Friday 17th March so any sponsor money or photographs must be submitted by then. Thank you for your support.
