Dates for the Diary
World Book Day
How wonderful did the children look yesterday? As you know, part of our celebrations for World Book Day included dressing up, as voted for by children. It was fantastic to see so many children, and staff, around the school dressed as some of the most popular fictional characters from the world of literature. We saw a huge array of characters from books by Harry Potter, Roald Dahl and David Walliams, to name just a few. Disney characters such as Ariel, Elsa and Belle and Princess Jasmine were also in school alongside Spiderman, Superman and Where's Wally. Also this year, we introduced children coming to school representing a word and saw a number of 'active' children in sportsgear, as well as multi-coloured outfits representing all colours of the 'rainbow'. Rover the Dog even made an appearance and chose the prize winners in each class.
A huge thank you to you as parents for supporting us.
Reading, of course, was the theme and the children took part in various fun and creative reading and writing opportunities to really promote a love of books and of reading not just for pleasure but also for a purpose. Children read not only with their classmates but with children in different classes. They were given an opportunity to share and read various books.
Thank you to all of you that donated used books for the Darwen Rotary to send to children in Gambia. If you haven't had time to do this yet, don't worry you can still send them in on Monday.
