25th – 29th January

 

 

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

This is our proposed list of events for the Scottish Literature Week.  We are delighted to invite authors Angus Konstam, Jill Bennet and Elizabeth Cordiner to the school.  If your child has any of their books at home please feel free to bring them into school to get these signed by the authors.  On Friday there is an open invite to all parents to come in to their child’s class to share their enjoyment of Scottish Literature.  All parents will be given an invitation by their child which should be completed and returned to the office.  So, if you have a favourite book, poem, or song that you would like to share with your son or daughter’s class we look forward to seeing you.
