Early and Lower Year pupils raised £648.50 for ‘Read For Good’ during their sponsored read. The money raised will provide children in hospital with mobile bookcases and resident storytellers.

Many activities were organised at school including: theatre workshops, paired reading, class story time... and children in Reception went to see the Winnie-the-Pooh exhibition at the Victoria and Albert.

Pupils thoroughly enjoyed it, documenting the books they read on class posters, and many recommended book titles have been exchanged.
