Dear Parents & Carers,


It's World Book Day on Thursday 4th March - this day is a celebration of all things books!  We love reading at Godfrey Ermen and so World Book Day is one of our favourite events each year.


For this day, we usually ask children to dress up as a particular character from a book.  However, we appreciate that things are very different this year, with our school being split between home and school-based learning, so see below for lots of other exciting, book-related activities for the children to do.


However, we know that some children do love to dress up, so if they want to wear a costume for their live lesson at home, or come into school dressed as a character from a book, then that is fine too.  The most important thing about this day is that we have fun with books!


Kind regards,


Mrs Clancy

Dear Parents & Carers,


The rate is still high in our areas so it is more important than ever that you follow the procedures at the start and the end of the school day.

  • Please wear a mask when on the school site.
  • Only arrive at your designated gate at the correct time, to make sure that you do not clash with the earlier bubble.
  • Arrange it so there is only one parent on each part of the site.
  • Leave promptly after collecting your child.
  • Maintain social distancing with other parents.
  • Keep your other children with you as you are waiting.
  • Do not chat with other parents at the gate.
  • Communicate with staff through Seesaw, email or phone.


By working together in this way, we are helping to keep our school open for as long as possible in these difficult times.


Take care and keep safe,


Mrs Clancy
