Newbold Church School loves Reading!

On 5th March 2020 the school celebrated world book day. Children across all age groups came to school dressed as a character from a book, and many shared their books with the children in their classes. Parents joined us to read as the school opened at 8.45, and were invited to a coffee afternoon to share in our joy of reading during the afternoon. A huge thank-you to all the parents and friends who have supported us in celebrating the endless possibility found in a book!!
