Whole School Fancy Dress Competition – Thursday 5 March

All pupils are encouraged to dress up as a character (or object) from a book on World Book Day. Be as imaginative as possible girls! Houses will send the girl(s) with the best fancy-dress costume in each year to the Hall at lunchtime, when the competition will be judged.

Book Reviews

All Lower School girls will be expected to complete a review of their favourite book. Templates for this competition will be provided by your English teachers. The review should be completed on A4 paper. Reviews will be collated and made into a book for display and this will be used to help other students choose a book to read. There will be a prize for the best three reviews. Be as enthusiastic as possible!
