World Book Day

Dear Parents and Carers,

This year’s World Book Day will take place on Thursday 5th March.

As usual, we are all looking forward to seeing your child dressed up in costume as one of their favourite book characters. Teachers cannot wait to get involved too!

The World Book Day website has lots of ideas on how to do this with as much or as little effort as you would like. There are some excellent ideas to get you started: and

However, children are equally welcome to come to school in their pyjamas all ready for a bedtime story if they prefer – just remember to bring their favourite book too!

As always, your child will receive a £1 book token to spend on a FREE book, or to save £1 on another full price book of their choice.

Full details are available at where you can see the fabulous books that are on offer this year.

Many thanks to those of you who have already sent in photographs of your children reading in all sorts of strange and wonderful places!

Happy reading,

Mrs Thomas

Literacy Coordinator

Y4 Times Table Club – Letters will be sent home this week

This half term, your child is invited to join our Times Tables Club to maximise and support their learning outside of normal lessons. These sessions are intended to help boost your child’s confidence, memory and ability when recalling their multiplication tables.

The club will take place on a Thursday after school from 3:15 – 4:15 p.m. The first session will take place on Thursday 27th February 2020. If your child attends the club, we ask that they are dedicated towards it and turn up every week unless there is a genuine reason e.g. dentist appointment. Please note that your child will need to be picked up from outside the double doors at the back of the hall at 4.15pm.

 Please note that there will not be a Times Table club session on Thursday 19th March as this is Parents’ Evening week.

Please complete and return the attached consent form by Tuesday 11th February 2020.
