World Book Day 2018!

Thursday 1st March is World Book Day!

This year we will once again be holding our annual Crossley Fields’ ‘Poetry Slam’. This is an event in which we are inviting all children to learn one of our shortlisted poems by heart and perform it to the rest of the class, possibly the school!
