Every year we have such fun entering into the spirit of World Book Day. This year we have decided to challenge ourselves to a change with what we usually do. This time we are going to focus upon the “Bedtime Story”. Everyone in our school is invited to come into school in their pyjamas or a character from their favourite bedtime story. They should bring the ‘bedtime story’ with them; we can have our favourite cushions to cuddle into and share our love of a good story together.
