World Book Day  Thursday 1st March. 

Our theme this year is Bedtime Stories so come to school that day in your pyjamas and bring along your favourite story to share with your friends at school!    The (baffling) menu is as follows:

Gringots Gold is chicken nuggets, Mandrake Stew is pasta Neapolitan,  Weasley’s Family Choice is beans and a Nimbus is a lolly!  Well, I’m glad that’s cleared up!!
