World Book Day Competition

One of the free world book day books is a Mr Man book. We challenged our children to tell us their favourite Mr Man/Little Miss character, or invent a new one of their own.

We had some fabulous work that was done at home. Well done everyone who entered and won a book prize. Here are a few of them.
