This year our theme for World Book Day was ‘Bedtime Stories’. We wanted to bring the magic of reading stories at bedtime to life at school so we held a pyjama day. We all came dressed in our pyjamas, onesies and dressing gowns. Many of us brought along our favourite furry friends as well. It was great fun! At the end of the day, we all settled down in the hall for a bedtime story. We listened to an old Jackanory version of Alice in Wonderland whilst enjoying hot chocolate and giant marshmallows. Yum!

We enjoyed our annual DEAR ‘Drop Everything And Read’ week. When the bell rang, we had to stop what we were doing and read for five minutes. This was exciting as you had no idea when the bell was going to sound.
