World Book Day this year takes place on Thursday 2nd March. It celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children.
This year St John’s are having a ‘Bedtime Stories’ themed day. We are asking all children to come to school in their pyjamas and bring in their favourite bedtime story. At 2.30pm we are inviting parents of EYFS, Y1 and Y2 to come to school to share their child’s favourite story with them (pyjamas optional for parents!). Parents should enter via the main school entrance. KS2 children will be discussing their books in class with their class teacher.
