As our children are continually working hard, teachers will award 'Teacher' and 'Head Teacher' awards for individual pieces of work that are of a high standard. This could be Literacy or Numeracy based work as well as topic work or even homework that a lot of effort has been put into. If your child receives an award from their teacher, parents will be invited to come and share the successes of their child in our Friday achievement assembly.
On Thursday 3rd March, children throughout the school dressed up as characters from their favourite books to celebrate World Book Day 2016.

Here are Mandarin and Ducklings showing off their superb outfits. You can catch more images of World Book Day in this week's edition of the Tamworth Herald.
