World Book Day 

4th March 2021

This week, we will be celebrating World Book Day. Encourage your child to read lots of stories throughout the day. Can your child talk to you about their favourite story? Read a story of your child's choice before bedtime. Below is a list of tips for how best to share stories with your child at home. 

Ms Osler has kindly recorded some songs for you to sing and dance along to at home.
