    World Book Day Fun

    Y5 really enjoyed World Book Day. The whole school used The DayThe Crayons Quit. Each class was given a different colour. The children rewrote pages from the book using their own fabulous ideas. Mrs. Barnett’s class wrote from the point of view of a red crayon.As you can see from the photo all the children and staff tried to come dressed in red. The children also bought in lots of red items for the red hamper, which will be in a raffle next week. The children were also lucky to each receive a book from school too. A fabulous day celebrating reading and writing !
