Last event of the World Book Day 2005 whirl today, with a quick trip over to GOODISON PARK, LIVERPOOL, to celebrate with all the young readers who'd been involved with EVERTON FC's EXTRA TIME STUDY SUPPORT CENTRE READING CLUB.
So a happy almost-Easter-time wave-with-bunny-ears to the brilliant children from THE TRINITY PRIMARY SCHOOL, ST. HUGH'S PRIMARY SCHOOL, and ST. VINCENT DE PAUL'S SCHOOL who all made such a fantastic audience. Many thanks to Sue Ferguson who organised the afternoon, and all her helpers, too. I had a great time. Happy Reading to you all!
Thanks, too, to the National Literacy Trust and "Reading is FUNdamental" who funded the nine week project. The children said their Extra Time sessions had really helped them to enjoy their reading now. What a fundamentally great initiative!
(Wonder when this will arrive on the blog? Wednesday? Thursday? Friday . . ? Longer? You don't get suspense like this in a movie.)
Well the last blog did eventually appear, but another cheer is needed for all the children & staff & Mr. Puchalka at BILTON GRANGE-with-an-E in Yorkshire and a correct spelling this time!)
And big World Book Day Week whoopees to all at ROGER DE CLARE FIRST SCHOOL, Puckeridge, Herts, especially Ms Wood for all her brilliant long-distance organising. Cheers also to everyone at ST. MATTHEWS, at Yiewsley,West Drayton for a happy time last Tuesday. A great big hooray to ST.JOSEPH'S RC.PRIMARY at Pickering, Yorkshire, for a wonderful World Book Day Thursday, and for magically melting Wednesday's snow so I could reach you. Last of all, thanks to all at BECKET PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL, Leeds, for a final fun-day on Friday.
I'm also going to add a big wave to all my "visits" this current week. so "Hi!" to everyone at BRAMLEY PRIMARY SCHOOL & to the two Year 4 Classes at RAYNVILLE PRIMARY SCHOOL, both in Leeds. Finally, to everyone at BISHOP THORNTON C of E Primary School, Yorkshire: "Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!"
