World Book Day was a huge success. Children came dressed in a range of amazing outfits from Gangsta Granny to Harry Potter, Matilda to Where's Wally. The Year 3's had a wonderful morning visiting Westdale Infants to watch a production of Robin Hood. Each year group across the school looked at a different picture book and did lots of exciting and interesting things around that book.

The children took part in the Speed Kick Challenge on Monday 12th November. This was a sponsored event where children got to kick a ball into a large inflatable goal. The speed of their kick was measured. The event was run by ex professional footballer Lee Canoville and lots of fun was had by all. Lee will be back in school in a few weeks to award medals to the fastest boy and girl in each class. Special awards will be given to children who have raised £25 or more. Half the money will come back to school and the other half goes to the charity 'Brighter Futures Through Sport'.
