For World Book day we followed a character, Mabel who does not like books. Never. Ever. The end! Throughout the day we had lots of activities to develop our love of reading, enjoyed our favourite stories and were even introduced to some new ones so that Mabel could go on lots of never-ending adventures, still dressed in her pyjamas! 

To help her along the way, this year we asked the children to come dressed in their comfy pyjamas, lounge wear, onesies etc...  so that we could settle down with a hot chocolate and a great story.

We had a fantastic turn out for our Christmas Fair, the PTFA did a wonderful job organising lots of great stalls and activities.
