‘We love March ’cause Spring is almost in the air’


Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. Established way back in 1919, it is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country! And we will be having lots of fun by taking part… here is what we have lined up!

We will be doing lots of crazy creative crafts around some of our favourite books.

Wednesday 1st March – Story Sack Day
The children will create their own story sacks for their rooms and they will be the main character.

**Thursday 2nd – WORLD BOOK DAY!**
Come dressed as your favourite book character and take part in our Character Catwalk – Prizes up for grabs!

Friday 3rd – Pyjama Day
One of our favourite days….snuggle up, bring your blanket and teddy and get ready for a day full of relaxation and stories.


11Buster’s staying with Grandma on the farm. But where will he find the eggs for breakfast? Not in the stable — oh dear! Our children will love lifting the flaps as they turn the pages and follow Buster around the farm.


A sunny garden hums, buzzes, creeps and crawls with life. Lift the flaps and peep through the delicate laser-cut holes to discover a whole host of butterflies, birds and bees, caterpillars, squirrels, frogs and other garden wildlife.

We will be creating our own garden creatures with lots of colours, sticking, painting and mark making.


12A Bear has settled in Mouse’s favourite chair–and that chair just isn’t big enough for two. He tries all kinds of tactics to move the pesky Bear but nothing works and poor Mouse gives up. Once Mouse has gone, Bear gets up and walks home.


13Next week for ‘World Book Week’ we will be reading SUPERWORM!

Never fear, Superworm’s here! He can fish Spider out of a well, and rescue Toad from a busy road. But who will come to Superworm’s rescue, when he’s captured by a wicked Wizard Lizard? We will be learning about what they eat and where they live… To view the full newsletter, please click here.
