We are celebrating World Book Day and our homework this week is to get busy reading for our sponsored 20 Book Reading Challenge. Further details are on the attached sponsor form. (Forms have also been handed out to children today)
Reading in Unusual Places!
Books can be read anywhere and everywhere! We would love you to bring in a photograph of yourself reading in an unusual place. Think about different, exciting, fun and SAFE places where you can enjoy a book. There will be a prize for the most unusual place!
