World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children.

You can find out more about the books at www.worldbookday.com/books.

Reading for pleasure

We are so pleased with the culture of reading for pleasure across our school. We are lucky to have access to the My-On library, which has thousands of e-books for children to enjoy both in school and at home. We also have a wide variety of books available in school for children to enjoy. Thank you for encouraging your child to read at home – it really makes a difference!

Many thanks,

Mr J Rawson
