World Book Day Friday 3rd March and Character Dressing Up
We will be celebrating World Book Day and our love of reading by dressing as a favourite book character for the day. Your child should come to school in their book character costume and will wear this for the day. Please remember that they still need to be able to play outside at break and lunchtimes. Please can you dress as a character from a book rather than as a Superhero as we will link our costumes to our learning for the day. The children have discussed ideas which are not tricky or expensive; Charlie from ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’; Sophie from the ‘BFG’; Alex Rider from ‘Storm Breaker; Jack from ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’; Hansel or Gretel.
Clubs for after half term
A new Club booking list has gone home today. The funding from the Boys Brigade has now finished so we will be saying goodbye and thank you to our Rural Challenge leaders next week. We will offer more sporting clubs after Easter when we hope for better weather in the summer term.
