Great News! We’re running a Scholastic Book Club. We’ll be sending the Book Club leaflets home on Friday 6th March so that you and your child(ren) can choose from the latest exciting selection of books. Please place your order online at http://schools.scholastic.co.uk/wearhead by 20th March. All orders placed also helps towards free books for the school.
When ordering online please put in the number of World Book Day vouchers that you will be using – there is one per child and this will entitle you to £1 off per book ordered.
We are celebrating World Book Day on Thursday and Friday of this week. As part of our WBD activities we are asking the children to design and make a famous book character using a potato. The designs can be as creative as they like but they must include a potato! These should be brought into school on the morning of Friday 6th March. Each potato should be labelled with the name of the character and its creator. The overall winner will
receive a £5 book credit to spend on an Amazon.co.uk book which they will choose and order in
school with Mrs Hayes.
