Our annual Book Fair runs from 9th-14th March this year. As part of the week we welcomed author David Donohue to our school. David spoke to all classes about the books he has written and we had great fun hearing him say all our names backwards, just like the character Walter in his book can!

We also dressed up as our favourite character from books we’ve read. There were prizes for best costume, a voucher to spend at the Book Fair.
