Author Visit and World Book Day Winners! – 3.3.23
Dear parents/carers,
Wow! What an incredible two days we have had! First our author visit by Karen Langtree and then World Book Day yesterday. The children looked fantastic in their costumes and it was clear to see how much effort had gone into creating them. A very well done to all of our pupils (and families!) for being so creative and imaginative. It was incredibly difficult to choose a winner from each year group but we are delighted to announce that the following children have gone home with a book prize this afternoon:

Nursery – Lenny (stickman)
Reception – Henry (Polar Express)
Year 1 – Matthew (Mr Strong)
Year 2 – Jessie (Miss Trunchbull)
Year 3 – Violet (Queen of Hearts)
Year 4 – Lovelle (Jane Austen)
Year 5 – Kaden (scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz)
Year 6 – Isabelle (Grinch)
During Wednesday’s author visit, Karen Langree led an advanced writing class for some of our year 6. After that she led an assembly detailing her journey to becoming an author and we joined in her song about believing in ourselves and our dreams! Year 3 classes then delved into the world of the “Knights of the Wobbly Table” and even met Sir Trumpsalot! Pupils and staff commented on a fantastic day being had by all.
Can you spot anyone in our video from the two fantastic days?
Thank you for all of your support and for helping us to celebrate reading and books in style!
