Book Week


We enjoyed an amazing visit from the author Ifeoma Onyefulu as part of our Book Week.  She has written ‘A is for Africa’ amongst other books which our children have enjoyed.

She told all children a story during Collective Worship and then led workshops with Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 which the children really enjoyed.

She finished with a book signing at the end of the day.

We also had a wonderful World Book Day when both staff and children had the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book characters!!
