There was a special assembly in the morning and teachers organises quizzes throughout play times. There was also a story-telling session at lunchtime.

Reading was on the agenda in partnered year groups and there was a giant book swap too.

Characters in the photograph are Fantastic Mr Fox, Dennis the Menace, Tigger, Mr Messy, Malificent, Willy Wonka, Dr Zeuss, Hermione Granger, the Tin Man and the White Rabbit.

Miss Whensley, English subject leader said, ‘It has been a wonderful day.  We always start the new year in January with a Book Week and World Book Day helps us build on that love of reading our children have.”

The school said a big thank you to parents and carers who organised great costumes even when there was a question mark over whether the school would be open because of the snow.
