VIRTUAL BOOK FAYRE
As you are aware, reading is something we feel incredibly passionate about at our school and the children have read a range of books in and out of the classroom to really start to build a love of reading and understanding that it shouldn't be a chore, but rather an enjoyable experience. We are so proud to see that all of our children consider themselves to be readers and that really is something we can now continue to build on through the summer. In order to maintain and capitalise on that momentum, routine and love of reading, you and your child may wish to delve into the amazing books available at The Virtual Book Fair and purchase some brilliant books for affordable prices. This will also give the children a chance to start choosing their own, age-appropriate books and sharing their recommended reads and personal favourites with their teachers and peers. We know that reading for pleasure has countless benefits so let's make the most of this great opportunity!

A WONDERFUL DONATION!
A 'huge thank you' to The Freemasons of Yorkshire, West Riding, for donating an astounding £2,500.00 to Arksey Primary School! The junior leadership team were thrilled to receive a giant cheque from Mr Wright, Mr Robinson and Mr Lowis. The money has been put towards a canopy to create an 'outdoor classroom' area - something all pupils will benefit from.
