We have two huge 'thank yous' to say this week, to the lovely people at Waterstones who have donated ten books as additional prizes to the ones we have bought. We also need to say a massive thank you to the wonderful people in the PTFA, who donated £45 towards the prizes for the reading challenge. Here is a photo of all the lovely books that will be awarded as prizes on World Book Day (7th March), when the challenge ends.

We Are Reading 22.1.19.

Three children (from the three groups, EYFS, KS1 and KS2), will be chosen at random from those who have completed their reading challenges and they will each receive:

First Prize: £10 Waterstones voucher - to buy a book of your choice!

Second and Third Prizes: One of the fabulous prize books

We will also be giving out prizes for those children who have worked really hard to think of an inventive place to read their book, sent in great photos of them reading and to other children who have just impressed us, until all of the book prizes have been awarded.


We have had one new entry this week, who received their certificate in assembly. Well done to Hanna (EYFS), who said she had made sure to put her coat on when she read 'The Shopping List' outside!


Well done and keep on reading!
