World Book Day

Our rescheduled World Book Day took place on 22 March because snow stopped us from celebrating on the original date. Class 3 could choose to dress up as a book character or come in their pyjamas (because everyone likes a story at bedtime). We also had a visit from Maxwell Southern who told stories from his homeland of Ghana. As well as stories, Maxwell also taught some pupils how to use his drums.
