World Book Day is on Thursday 4th March 2021.

We are celebrating by having a focus on reading Monday 1st March - Friday 5th March.  Each morning Zoom will start with a poem and in each literacy lesson, your child will listen to a different story.  We will also be asking your child to complete an additional reading challenge each day.  Download the document at the bottom of the page for more details and useful links.
