To launch the focus on reading, St Andrew’s are having an amazing competition: ‘Story in a shoe box’.
During half term children are encouraged to make a model of their favourite book in a shoe box, using whatever materials they choose and there will be a winner chosen for each year group. The boxes will be displayed around the school for everyone to see!
The entries need to be brought into school for Monday 29th October and must be clearly labelled with name and class.
To help us raise funds to buy a broader range of reading resources such as magazines, comics and newspapers we are also having a Mufti Day on Thursday 18th October for a donation of £1.
And further exciting reading news – the school library will be open after school on a Friday until 3.50pm from 2nd November, so please come along and enjoy reading a book in our newly-designed library.
