Well done to everyone who came dressed as a book character – there were some great costumes! All pupils participated well in the poetry workshops and they have all been challenged to learn one of the poems. Each child has a sheet of poems to enjoy at home and they have been asked to choose from their class sheet one of the poems (or a verse from a longer poem) to recite from memory on Monday, so we look forward to hearing their poems.  Congratulations to all participants in the Catteral Shield Cross Country Event and thanks to Craig Eccleston for his help. Thank you to everyone who has purchased red noses; we are now sold out!
