World Book DayWBD2016_yellow_rightdown
TOMORROW is World Book Day.  This is a great opportunity to get children enthusiastic about reading!  In celebration we are holding a competition for all pupils:

PUPIL CHALLENGE – have your photograph taken while reading somewhere unusual!

Pupils should bring any outstanding photos tomorrow.  Remember the top three entrants will win a bookish prize.

P6 and 7 are having a great time so far!  Yesterday they completed the Crystal Maze and a night time orienteering challenge.  Hope you’re all enjoying the peace and quiet and have the washing machine ready for all the dirty laundry.

The children will be back to school after lunch on Friday and should be collected at 2p.m.  P6/7 from Woodhall can get the school bus at 2p.m.
