Pupils (and staff) are invited to dress up as a character from a book to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 3rd March. This is not a non-uniform day, if pupils wish to participate then they must be dressed as a character from a book, story, comic or novel. There were some fantastic costumes last year and we hope to see the same standard again. There will also be a prize for the best costume (one per base)!

We would especially like to see characters from the texts pupils have been reading over the course of this academic year. For inspiration, a list of what we have read so far is listed below:
