World Book Day Thursday 4th March 2021

See the source image

On Thursday it is World Book Day.  We have posted some favourite stories in the Story Time section of this page.  We hope you enjoy them.

Why don't you read your favourite story to a member of the family, or maybe you could pretend to be your favourite story book character?  In your learning pack is a sheet of paper asking you to design a front cover for a new book.  We would love to see your ideas.

Year 1 Zoom Meeting

We really enjoyed seeing some of you on our zoom call on the 24th February 2021.  It was so nice to see your faces, share a story and play a game.  

Our next Year 1 Zoom call is on Wednesday 3rd March 2021 at 2.00pm.  This week we are celebrating World Book Day so during our Zoom session we would like you to have your favourite book with you to share.  

You will need to use the same log in details that were sent out to you before the holidays and is on the home learning packs.  Please contact us if you have any problems with this.

See you there! Mrs. Brand, Mrs. Wilson, Mr. Rudge and Mrs. Pipe.
