Phoenix celebrated World Book Day on Friday the 6th of March

World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. Reading issomething that we really value at Phoenix and we understand the importance of children getting enjoyment from their reading. At the moment we have many exciting, new initiatives taking off in school; all aimed at improving children’s reading and building their interest. World Book Day was an excellent way to kick start things. Here’s what we will did on World Book Day on Friday 6 March:Every child and teacher dressed up as a book character and participated in a fashion show.  We had the BFG, Dalmatians, Cat in a hat, Pippi Longstocking. Harry Potter and many other characters at school. Children also participated in reading activities during the week as part of their daily lessons. We  also  had  a book donation during the day.  This required children to bring in a book that they no longer want  in order to donate it to an orphanage.  Well done Phoenix!  - you donated more than 600 books. 

Anglia books treated us to a book fair in the hall - thanks to all the parents for their support. We encourage all parents to join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day by reading together regularly and joining the new children's library in Blantyre if you are not yet members. Children are never too young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous.

With best wishes
