World of Work Day! (Added 23May24)
Libberton and Wiston Primaries came together yesterday at Libberton to celebrate their World of Work day!  Thank you so much to all the fantastic volunteers from a great range of local companies, who gave up their afternoons to come and see us!  Our children learned about a range of different jobs and careers and had a fantastic time learning so much about the different opportunities available to them.  They asked a lot of great questions!   Please have a look on our Gallery page for some photographs of the day.

"On World Book Day we got HOT CHOCOLATE!  And an authors live Which was VERY FUN!  We had book inspired lunches ,such as Charlotte and Wilbur's chicken goujons, George's Marvellous creamy tomato pasta, Hobbits ham roll and for dessert we had a big cake called Zog’s chocolate tiffin which was VERY DELICIOUS.  After playtime we played book pass the parcel, book themed corners and we had a book hunt 😃 and we all had our blankets teddies and pillows which was very comfy because we did some reading altogether and we all enjoyed World Book Day!!!!!!!!"
