As ‘World Book Day’ is on Thursday we thought we would have a whole week all about books. In our book week we will be focussing our week on the authors ‘Claire Freedman and Ben Cort’ doing a different character who love underpants everyday! We will be sharing stories, doing crafts and challenges everyday and we hope you’ll get involved!
We will also be having 2 competitions, entries will need to be in by Thursday 4th March…
