World book day

Thank you for your great efforts in dressing the children so well for our wonderful celebrations of books. It was great fun. We do understand that ‘bought’ costumes are very expensive and would encourage parents to make costumes or bring in props. We have lots of ideas and some spare costumes in school, so if you are stuck please let us know. We do not want the expense to spoil the fun.
