A link will be sent out by Mrs Greenwood to join the story session. You can attend as many as you like. There will be no class zooms on Thursday. Instead, the story sessions will be running and there will be a World Book Day Activity Page. This page will have loads of different activities to do or try, and you can pick and mix the ones you think your child will like the most to do. Please click the link below to find out more (the activities will be uploaded between now and Thursday).


World Book Day 2021


This year, we will not be dressing up in school/bringing things to school, and the day will be about celebrating reading instead. However, if you are at home and would like to dress up, please do so. You could also bring your cuddly toy to the story sessions in your house and add a photo of you reading to your tapestry.


Mrs Greenwood will also be sending a World Book Day token that can be exchanged for a £1 book.  


In the evening of World Book Day, Miss Salter will be running her 'Winter Warmer' experience virtually for Year 1 children. We will have a winter warmer pack for your Year 1 child ready on Wednesday from 1pm onwards to come and collect (with  goodies inside). This Winter Warmer runs every year for Year 1 children and we didn't want them to miss out this year!


Your child needs to be ready to log on with you at 5pm, dressed in their nightclothes (you can too!). You will receive a zoom link from Miss Salter next week to click and join.


We look forward to seeing you all virtually next week. remember to send your reading pictures in. We will add a slideshow on the website to celebrate your fantastic reading!


Best wishes


Mrs Riches and Miss Salter
