Wonderful World Book Day

It has been a week since World Book Day, and I thought it would be lovely to look back and remember what a great day it was.

The website has been updated with photographs, so head over there if you want to linger over the pictures a little longer.

But for a whistle-stop tour of the day, check out our video…..

Wonderful World Book Day

We had a great day celebrating books at Plover. There were all sorts of characters walking around from Gangsta Granny to Mr and Mrs Twit; Mary Poppins and Wonky Donkey; Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf in Grandma’s clothing- plus lots, lots more!

We had lots of potato photos for the potato character competition and some great reviews on the Padlet – check out the books that have been recommended – they are bound to make you LOL!

Our Masked Reader competition was very popular – well done to Harper in 4G for correctly identifying all 20 of the Masked Readers

We have lots of photos of the day so check out our World Book Day Website for many more: https://sites.google.com/ploverschool.co.uk/ploverworldbookday2021/home

During this current Coronavirus Lockdown, the well-being of our children remains very important to us. We understand that children are dealing with the restrictions in different ways, and that some children are finding it hard-going.

If you have concerns, this resource may help, there are a selection of tips:

The resource is available as a document and short video presentation.

Please do speak to your class teacher too, as there may be more support we can offer.

This link will also be in the Parent Support Centre area on the front page of the school website.

Have your circumstances changed? You may be entitled to Free School Meals.

The process is quick and you can find out straight away.

Please contact school if you need support in applying and we will be happy to help.
