World Book Day - Wednesday 1st March
Next week, we will be celebrating World Book Day, on Wednesday 1st March, along with our Infant colleagues. This is a change of date due to industrial action. As is tradition, the children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite literary character. We’re hoping to see as many homemade costumes made of recycled materials as possible! The costumes at Strand are always spectacular and showcase the incredible breadth of reading interest in our school. The highlight as ever will be our costume parade through the playground. This year will also see the return of last year's hit, the Reading Café. Year groups will be mixed together throughout the day to share their favourite reads with children outside of their class, while munching a biscuit or two! Children are therefore asked to bring in one book on Wednesday which they feel confident to talk about to their peers. This could be the book which has inspired their costume, their all-time favourite or simply their latest read. We will also be visited by two excellent authors, Hannah Moffatt and Aisling Fowler, in the afternoon. A letter about these authors and how to order their books has already been sent out via Parentpay.
Please be aware Year 6 PE has been moved to Friday next week.
