World Book Day - Thurs 4th March. Look What's Happening!
Thursday 4th March is World Book Day. So this week we are celebrating the wonderful world of books but moving it all online.
Meet author Chris Bradford
This week, Year 7 and Year 8 will have a virtual author visit from Chris Bradford, author of the very popular Young Samurai, Bodyguard and Bullet Catcher series, and will hear all about his new Soul Hunters book.
There are two competitions from Chris with prizes of books and posters and the chance for your name to appear in his next book!
The Soul Hunters (pictured) is available from our library in school.
