World Book Day Celebrations
*Please note that ourselves and the Junior School are celebrating this the day before the official day.
Henleaze Infant and Junior Schools are collaborating on Wednesday 6th March to mark this year’s World Book Day. To celebrate this day which acknowledges the importance of reading for pleasure, we have some exciting events for you to join in with:

  • Dress up as your favourite book character!
  • Join in for Mrs Wood’s Wake and Shake from 8.30am on the Infant playground (please note this is weather permitting and all children MUST be accompanied by an adult and then taken to their classrooms for the usual 8.45am start time). Juniors welcome too!
  • Bring in a printed photo of you ‘Reading Your Way. This could be reading a favourite book or reading in a favourite place, or perhaps reading whilst eating your favourite snack? It’s up to you how you show ‘Reading Your Way’.
  • Take home your World Book Day book token to redeem a book from many high street stores and supermarkets.

More information about World Book Day including how to redeem your token and support to encourage reading at home is available here:

Red Nose Day! ( Friday 15th March – Week 4) This will also involve dressing up if your child chooses to.
SPACE WOW DAY (Friday 22nd March – Week 5) The Explorer Dome will be coming to give each class their own Planetarium Show. We will be asking for a parental contribution for this but this is replacing a trip this term. We will give you more details nearer the time. It will involve dressing up for those who wish to!
