The children thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day on Thursday. Thank you very much for making so much effort with their costumes. I have to say that the staff outdid themselves this year, so well done to them too! We will upload some photos to the gallery on our website soon. The day enabled us to celebrate the joy of reading and continue to encourage the children to read and enjoy books of all genres. I have spent the majority of the week observing the teaching across the school. I spend a lesson with every teacher and then give them feedback on the teaching and learning I have seen. The observations are also used as an opportunity to share best practice with each other so other teachers join me as well. As always, it has been a pleasure to spend some quality time in lessons with the children and see them continue to make excellent progress across the school.
