World Book Day
World Book Day is on Thursday, 5th March and we will be having a ‘story character day’ when the children can come to school dressed up as their favourite book character.
We will also be running a competition: ‘Character Creation’, where we are asking children to create a story character. They can do a picture or drawing, a clay model, a 3D model, a food character – anything they choose which shows their character, with a few notes to explain what is special about their character (these can be scribed for Panda children if necessary).
Please ensure your child’s name and class are clearly marked on all work.
Entries need to be taken to the school hall, via the hall doors from the playground, on the morning of Thursday, 5th March by 8.40am.Any entries received after this time will not be included in the judging process.
Usborne Books will be in the Courtyard on Monday & Tuesday, 2nd & 3rd March, until 4.30pm when children will be able to use their £1 World Book Day token, as well as being able to buy & order books which will be delivered to school the following week.

Many of you will be aware that you have been able to raise money for the School just by doing your online shopping through the Spend and Raise website. This site has recently changed its name to Easy Fundraising and can be accessed through the link below.
Easy Fundraising will still offer the same wide range of online retailers with various levels of commission available to the School. Please pass this information on to friends and family so they can also use the site to do any online shopping which will give us the opportunity to use any commission raised to purchase new school equipment. Happy Shopping!
