Birthday Books

At Primrose Hill, we love to celebrate birthdays! However, we like to do things a little differently and have found a way to not only allow everyone in school to share in a child's celebrations at the time, but to continue to enjoy the occasion for years to come. Instead of bringing sweets into school, which as a healthy school we try to discourage, we ask that pupils who wish to share a gift with their friends bring in a Birthday Book! 


So, rather than pupils having up to 30 bags of sweets a year, they could instead have access to a wide range of high quality texts that can be enjoyed for years to come. When a pupil does bring a book in for their birthday, this will be passed to Mr. Caunce or Mrs. Swinburn and the event will be shared in our weekly celebration assembly and also detailed in our newsletter. A lovely label will be placed inside the book detailing the birthday pupil's name, date of birth and age of their birthday when the book was donated and the book will then be placed in our library for pupils to read for years to come. If you would like to share in this wonderful birthday celebration scheme, we have compiled wish lists of age appropriate books that pupils and staff would love to have access to - these can be found below.
