World Book Day - 6th March

In conjunction with World Book Day 2014, every child at ARK Ayrton Primary Academy has been able to choose a new book from this year’s selection.

Staff from the school contacted local book shops and with the help of Tesco North Harbour and Blackwells (Portsmouth University’s bookshop) were able to secure over 300 books. This meant every single child from Nursery to Year 6 now has a brand new book to read or share with their parent/carer.

At ARK Ayrton we know improving children’s literacy skills enables them to succeed in other subjects and this is a fantastic opportunity to encourage them to read for pleasure!
