Book fair and World Book Day bring reading alive at Roebuck!
Last Thursday, children and staff celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite book characters as part of our themed week based around a class book. We even had a bunch of 'Wallies' as staff dressed up as the favourite character from the picture book 'Where's Wally?' The week ended with excitement as our book fair arrived and all of the classes enjoyed time browsing through the books and creating their wish lists.
During Parents' evenings this week, the book fair has been open and we have been overwhelmed by the support from children and parents. Roebuck school has raised a whopping £1353.76 which means Scholastic will give the school £752.26 back to spend on books. Over the next few days, children and teachers will be busy writing down their wishlists and Mrs Thomas is getting very excited about spending all of the money on lots of lovely new books!
A huge thank you to everyone who supported our book fair - happy reading!
