World Book Day

Today at MCPA we've been celebrating World Book Day, and I have to say that the standard of costumes has been even better this year than last year. My favourite costumes are the ones where children and their parents have thought really carefully about a book which is special to them and made a costume to suit; there are some great examples of this on show today.

Today we've also opened our reading garden. This is the newly developed area of the playground with a gazebo, picnic bench, story telling chair, logs to sit on and the reading shed containing books and magazines for all ages . Children are invited to use this space at break and lunch to read, chat and relax with their friends.

Whilst World Book Day is a great opportunity to dress up and have some fun, it's also a chance to talk about the books which we love. As parents, we would like to encourage you to talk to your children about their and your favourites. 

Here at MCPA we read every day, it's a huge part of our school life. If you reinforce this with your children and read with them too, then they are only going to continue getting better and better.
