WORLD BOOK DAY
The children have had a lovely day dressed in their pyjamas. In the afternoon the full school watched a play from ‘The Reading Room’ taking the children on a journey through a variety of different stories by different authors.

In order to raise money towards the transport costs for Young Voices, the choir is putting on a musical performance after school on Thursday 26th January from 3.30 to 4.30 p.m. This is a great opportunity for everyone to get a taste of what Young Voices is like and we would love you to come along and support us.

Please make sure that children have coats and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions. This includes hats, scarves and gloves, as I am sure you are all aware Britannia has its own micro-climate and it does get very cold, windy and wet.
It has been brought to our attention that there was some confusion on facebook this morning about whether school was open. Please note that should the school need to close at any point, we will always endeavour to let you know as soon as possible through our text messaging service. If you hear nothing you should always assume school is open and as long as it is safe to do, please bring your child to school.
