World Book Day

On Monday 6th March 2017, Astley Primary School celebrated World Book Day. The children made a fantastic effort and came dressed as a variety of story characters with everything from Harry Potter to a crayon. 

The school also welcomed Pippa Goodhart, a published author, who shared stories she had written and stories from her life with all the classes across the school. 

It was a fantastic day with lots of opportunities to inspire the children at Astley to read and write!
