English special events this year!

We always want to inspire, help develop and immerse the children in to their writing and reading at Toftwood. As part of this we focus on special events throughout the school year which promote this further and encourages a whole federation reading and writing culture.  

This year the children will have the opportunity to celebrate poetry, non-fiction texts, certain authors and also a range of texts. The following events are going to be taking place: 

* 7th October – National Poetry Day 

* Throughout November we will be celebrating all things Non-fiction 

* On the 3rd March your child will be able to dress up as their favourite book character for World Book Day (theme and more information to be sent nearer the time) 

* 21st March we will be reading a range of poetry from around the world 

* Shakespeare Day will be celebrated on 22nd April 

* Finally, the children will be taking part in the National Writing Day in June.  

We look forward to all of these events and hope the children really enjoy these too!
