World Book Day

World Book Day was on Thursday 3rd March 2016.

We celebrated this event by holding a 'DEAR' (Drop Everything and Read) day in lessons on the day.

It means the focus for each lesson you have on Thursday should be on reading. There will be a starter linked to 'World Book Day' for each lesson too!
