As we missed our cosy book picnic because of the snow last week we will be having it tomorrow- Wednesday the 7th March. Pupils are invited to bring in their favourite book, and are welcome to bring in pyjamas or something cosy to wear, and a blanket or a favourite soft toy as well. We are looking forward to snuggling up with a book and enjoying reading together.

‘Booknic’ on Wednesday

As this is Book Week, on Wednesday 28th February, Primary 1/2 will be having a school ‘booknic’. We will be celebrating our favourite books during a class picnic!

As part of our focus on raising attainment in literacy we aim to promote the enjoyment of reading and the value of books to encourage our pupils to be lifelong, enthusiastic readers.

Children should bring a favourite book (or two) from home to share with their friends. They can also bring a cuddly toy, pyjamas or a small blanket, if they wish.

Happy reading!
