P2 Visit WH Smith

Following our World Book Day activities, P2 got to visit our local WH Smith store to find out a little more about how the books we love get to our local shops. James, the manager, very kindly invited us along to explain how they catalogue their books, stock their shelves and help celebrate World Book Day. We also had the opportunity to see the packed storeroom and stock some books on the shelves using the shop’s special iPad app. There was just time to colour some of our favourite book characters and to spend our World Book Day tokens on a free £1 book. We would like to thank James for his time, the kind invitation and the wonderful goodie bags he presented us. For our Big Writing the following week we wrote special thank you letters to James.
