Follifoot School: many parents were welcomed to help to celebrate World Book Day. They shared their favourite books and listened to a variety of stories and poems. Including Watership Down, A Squash and a Squeeze, Green Eggs and Ham and Always Eat Your Bogies (which raised a good giggle). The children also celebrated St Patrick’s Day. Eagle Owls worked in groups to produce large scale St Patrick’s Day posters which were original and creative as the result of considerable careful research. Little Owls wrote poems about green and orange and produced green and orange jelly which they were able to eat. They, also, learned a lot about St Patrick and his life in Ireland
