Please place your order online by October 31st, 2019.
We would love to make this online Scholastic/Setanta Book Club a success!
We had our first Reading cafe/Book tasting in the library yesterday with 1st years. We tried some non-fiction, junior fiction, fantasy, biographies and graphic novels and it was great to see students sampling a wide variety of genres! Students completed a 5 course menu tasting 5 books and then borrowed a book afterwards #readersareleaders #booktasting #readingcafe
Some scary October reads from the Junior Fiction section of our library 📚💀👻 #TheWitches #RoaldDahl #Amurdermostunladylike #RobinStevens #GothGirl #ChrisRiddell #PenelopeLively #Childhoodreads #LibrariesWeek #Halloween
We have some classic Jacqueline Wilson books available to borrow from the library and a few of them are now on display. Hoping to add some more new titles and also a few new copies of pre-loved ones to the collection! We hope our students enjoy this fabulous writer whose books impact many generations of readers.
We made some seasonal bats in the library ‘Make and Do’ craft club this lunchtime. Some students decided to tweak the decorations and make “cat-bats”! Students enjoyed getting crafty and switching off while being creative.
We would like to have all the overdue library books returned to the library, particularly those which were borrowed before the summer break. There are a lot of missing Wimpy Kids, Dork Diaries gone astray and no Pretty Little Liars to be found! There are no fines and we are just happy to see the library books back in circulation for other students.
We are reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio for the Junior Book Club at the moment. We will meet every Tuesday @lunchtime in the library. All 1st-3rd years welcome. New book suggestions welcome too.
To celebrate Roald Dahl day 2019, we put together a bright and vibrant display of all our Roald Dahl books. We also did some tricky Matilda and Roald Dahl related word searches in our weekly Puzzle & Games Club.
We’re delighted to have once again been awarded a PDST Wellread National Award! In their letter to us the PDST say ‘It was such an enjoyable experience for us to gain insight into all the initiatives you undertook as a whole school community to get everybody reading. The enthusiasm and creativity of all involved was evident in your school’s portfolio. We commend you for bringing your school community together in such an enriching and worthwhile manner’. Huzzah!
