World Book Day

Today has been World Book Day and we were delighted that so many of our Prep pupils dressed up as their favourite book characters. Their teachers did, too! The children’s costumes were carefully judged by all the teachers and the winners in each year group received £5 book tokens.

All the children were also given £1 book vouchers to spend at the Ketts Books fair in school tomorrow, where there will be a special selection of books available for just £1.

Lots more pictures coming soon. Meanwhile, congratulations to the winners, pictured here (and their parents!). The pupils and their characters  are listed under the picture…

No Valentine’s roses but….

…with the sun shining, our grounds still have plenty to offer. The first signs of spring are in evidence today, with these lovely snowdrops, and a few daffodils in bud. Unless the florist arrives with a bunch, we’ll have to wait a few months for roses, though. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
