World Book Day 2022
Carr Junior celebrated 25 years of World Book day by dressing up as their favourite character from a story, or by wearing their pajamas to celebrate a love of reading at bedtime. The children all looked absolutely fantastic and our Twitter feed was filled with photos of them in their costumes. This year, we joined together with Carr Infants School and the children paired up to read to one another. The delight on their faces really emphasised how reading for pleasure can evoke such happiness. We are already looking forward to celebrating World Book Day again next year.

On Friday 7th May, we held a Number Day in aid of the NSPCC.
As part of the day we children came dressed in something number related for a donation towards this worthy cause. All money that was donated for coming in fancy dress will be donated to the NSPCC. Children took part in some number related activities. These included TT Rockstar battles, reading lessons linked to numbers and some real-life maths lessons linked to money. In addition to the work done in school, there was also a family maths challenge.

On Thursday 13th December, they visited York Hospital to perform a number of songs in the main entrance area to raise money for the York Teaching Hospital Charity.
