Term 2 2011
On Friday 20th May, Coatesville School celebrated Literacy Week with all pupils dressing up as a book character. Many character studies were prepared and displayed as hats, sandwich boards, posters and costumes. The display made a colourful scene. One highlight of the assembly was a visit from Super Coatesville Man [Mr Johnson]. During Literacy Week, teachers rotated around the classrooms reading a story of their choice. The library was packed with new books available for the students to buy.
