World Book Day - Spuds, spuds, and more spuds!

The children and staff of St Stephen's Junior School dressed as their favourite book characters to celebrate World Book Day on March 2nd. It was wonderful to see so many imaginative and original costumes! Our day began with a special performance of Eoin Colfer's ​'The Legend of Spud Murphy'. Mr Bowles made a particularly terrifying librarian (thankfully nothing like our own librarian, the lovely Mrs Chidgey).

Children then swapped classrooms to hear the stories they'd signed up for; the identities of the storytellers came as a surprise to all. We hope that many will have been inspired to read on, or find other books by the same author to enjoy at home. During the afternoon, children got creative, designing 'Book Spuds' to resemble their favourite fictional characters. We think you'll agree that their creations were truly spudtacular! A prize potato was chosen from each class and the winners received an invitation to Mrs Chidgey's Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

Launch of the Smoke Free Posters!

SmokeFreePostersOur School Council, Mr. Pywell, and Mrs. Erasmi attended the launch of The Smoke Free Poster Campaign. St. Stephen’s Junior were runners up with Athena Martin’s beautifully painted poster.

The signs have already been put up at both gates at St Stephen’s encouraging parents not to smoke at the school gates. It has been a very successful campaign and we are extremely proud of all the children that took part. The entries are displayed in our reception. Another successful event organised by our pro-active school council. We hope to make our runner ups poster by Athena into a sign and display it too at our gates.
