'Believe to Achieve'


Welcome to World Book Day

Still image for this video

Today we want to celebrate stories, books and imagination!

We are going to do lots of activities and you will be taken to places far and wide! We will be asking you to complete activities away from the screen, just like we do when we read books.

We will be having a TEAMS call during the day today to complete a book based activity/ listen to a story. (And don't worry you can all make it, it won't clash with your siblings as they are all at different times). We will send you the link and really hope you will join us.
