Sharing our Core Texts
(2nd March 2022)
As part of our book week we had a very special assembly this Wednesday. Representatives from each class took the opportunity to share the book their class will be focussing on this half term. They went on to explain how their book fits into our whole school theme of ‘Saving our Environment’. It was a joy to see children sharing their enthusiasm of reading and looking forward to a half term packed with learning.
