World Book Day, 2nd March 2017

Thanks to everyone for your wonderful support of World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March which raised £388.60 for the Children’s Ward at the North Devon District Hospital.

The children were fantastic, such colourful and varied book characters. It was great to see the staff joining in too!

Newport Community School Primary Academy spent the whole of the week 27th February – 3rd March celebrating World Book Day.

The children enjoyed listening to members of staff sharing their favourite books at lunchtime as well as reading their favourite books with children from other year groups.

School Council also organised a book character hunt which was enjoyed by children across the school. Some children were knowledgeable enough to know the character, book and author!

On World Book Day Year 4 were visited by local author Claire Barker who shared her fabulous Knitbone Pepper series with the children.

A great week was had by all!
