We are celebrating World Book Day next Friday 8th March 2019. As part of our celebrations, we would love the children to dress up as one of their favourite characters from a book. Each class will take part in a rangeof activities throughout the day linked to World Book Day. There will also be a whole school assembly and a parade which will give pupils the opportunity to show off their costumes. There will be a number of prizes on the day for the best costume in each class. Following the success of last year, we have decided to partner up once again with our Eco Committee to run an extra competition. Mrs Mulholland and Miss Cassidy are offering a special prize for the best costume made using reusable materials.
‘SHARE A STORY’
For the first time, this year we are inviting parents, grandparents or relatives to come into school to read their favourite story to a class of their choice. If you or a relative are free next Friday, we would LOVE to have you in our classrooms. All you need to do is pick your favourite book or novel and be brave enough to read it or a short extract to your chosen class. This is an opportunity NOT to be missed!!
‘GET CAUGHT READING!’
Last year’s ‘Get Caught Reading’ competition was an AMAZING success so we are going to run it again!We would like children to bring in a photograph of them getting ‘caught reading’ in an unusual, inspiring, magical, funny place or situation. Each photograph must have a suitable accompanying caption. Please send the photographs into each class teacher by Thursday 7th March. Prizes will also be awarded for the top 3 entries.
We’re looking forward to having a wonderful celebration next week.
