World Book day was on Thursday March 1st. This was a very exciting week as ‘Singing’ was also celebrated within school. World Book started on the Tuesday with the librarians from Penrith visiting school to discuss the exciting opportunities available at the library. A reading group meets each Tuesday evening at 4.30pm to discuss new books.
The librarians gave us a taste of titles available within the library, they are open seven days a week including Sunday!! What could be better on a Sunday afternoon than a browse amongst the shelves. In addition each child is entitled to an hours internet access each day!! Our school will be visiting in their classes during the summer term, an internet access letter and library joining letter will be sent home to sign to ensure everyone in our school community is a member!
On World Book Day. children and staff came as their favourite characters, we had a few Harry Potters, a Hermione, Winnie the Witch, an Enormous Caterpillar and so many more.
The classrooms were awash with activities, and our week ended on March 8th with the Usborne ‘Book Fair’ and Clare French we were able to browse through a large range of books by well known authors, featuring Comedy, Facts, Picture, Fiction and great stories that adults probably enjoyed when they were about our age too! We invite Usborne books to school each year to help us celebrate World Book Day. Usborne are very generous and our school receives a percentage of the profits in books. This year we were able to choose over £360 worth of books - a great addition to our class sets and library book stocks.
Thanks to everyone! Keep Reading! ‘
