We would like to thank all children and parents for the fantastic effort for this year’s world book day celebration. The children had a wonderful day and enjoyed showing off their fantastic costumes during our Barcroft Big Read assembly. This has been the most successful world book day in recent years with almost every child taking part in dressing up. We managed to raise a fantastic £294 for the official world book day charity. The object of the Charity is to advance the education of the public, particularly by assisting in the promotion of reading among children and young people.
