Chamberlain Book Day

On the 15th March 2018 staff and pupils took part in Chamberlain Book Day! It was a pleasure to see staff and pupils dressed up as their favourite book characters. Prizes were awarded to the best costumes in each year group. Congratulations to all of the winners and to everyone who took part in the day.

On this day we also had a visit from the author Julia Golding. She delivered interactive assemblies with lower and upper phase. She was also interviewed by the Library Monitors and on Ark Radio. In the afternoon she autographed books for pupils and conducted a Creative Writing Workshop. This was such a brilliant day!
