Can you make a junk model of your favourite character from a book? It could be the Gruffalo, Harry Potter or the big bad wolf! Take a picture of your model and sent it to the school twitter account or school email.  There will be prizes for the best model. (@LonghuaghPS) ( )

During the course of the day Mrs Jenkins or Mr Smith will pop into every class and read one of their favourite stories.
