World Book Day Events

This week we celebrate World Book day on Thursday. During the week, we have lots of fun reading and book events taking place. Each class will have story time swaps where a different adult from the school will come to read them a story. Each class will make books to be displayed in their library making every child an author!. On Thursday Years 4-6 will take part in a football themed reading quiz. All children may bring in their favourite books, comics or magazines to read on Thursday. On Friday you may choose to dress up as your favourite character- I can't wait to see who you come as.

Let’s spread the love

Broadbent Fold's Valentine disco was a massive success. The turn out was phenomenal and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you to everyone who turned up. Happy Valentine's Day!
