Whole School Activities
- Change a wooden spoon (or similar) into a book character at home; we ask that you take a photograph of your creation and email to Mrs Berryman at firstname.lastname@example.org and then save your spoon to bring into school on return.
- Make a reading den, or find yourself a hidden place to read - please ask a parent to capture your space with a photograph and email it to Mrs Berryman, too. During the day, ask a parent to play a noise or piece of music which is a signal for you to get in your den and read.
Have a great World Book Day!
