World book day 🎈
We certainly had some interesting new pupils in school on Friday as we celebrated World Book Day. The children had the most wonderful day wearing costumes and describing their favourite book characters. Well done to all of the girls and everyone who helped them get into character on Friday! A fantastic effort was made and it really sparked the children’s interest and love of books!
