We had a fantastic Roald Dahl themed Book Week this year where the children were exposed to many Roald Dahl books and they learnt lots of interesting facts about the famous author. There were plenty of activities over the week including book browsing at the Book Fair; shared reading where children in the older classes read to the younger classes; DEAL time (Drop Everything And Listen) where the children had a visitor to their room to read some Roald Dahl stories. We ended the week with a dress up day and the children dressed up as a character from their favourite book – we had lots of Matildas, Oompa Loompas, Willy Wonkas and even some Golden Tickets!! Willy Wonka himself hid some golden tickets around the school and the lucky finders were rewarded with a chocolate bar!

We were delighted with the amount of books sold at the Book Fair as the school will get 60% of the money raised back in books for our libraries. A huge thank your to our Parents’ Association for manning the Book Fair and to every parent for your support in purchasing books and of course for helping to kit out your children in fantastic costumes on Friday.
