Library What's On

Miss McAtamney is very keen to hear what you've all been reading over the summer! Junior Book Club is held on Thursdays during lunch in the library. First year pupils and any new pupils are most welcome. This a fantastic way of making friends and settling into school life.

10th -14th October 2022

As part of our celebrations for National Poetry Day on 6th October, we are hosting our annual Book Fair. Pupils will have an opportunity to browse the fair during their allocated library period, during break and lunch-time. A great chance to buy some great books! The book fair will be packed with hundreds of the best children’s books – from award winners and the newest titles to pocket-money pick-ups and treasured classics. Many of the books available to purchase will be on the Accelerated Reader programme.

Junior Book Club members can take part in a book shadowing scheme run by colleagues and librarians in local schools. Various events such as author visits, workshops and collaboration with other schools take place over a number of weeks. This is usually in the Spring term – date to be confirmed.

The new 2022 Annuals and World Records books have just arrived in the school library. Come and have a browse during break and lunch !!

Our Book Club was delighted to meet author, Nikki Sheehan at the most recent Oxplore "virtual visit". She discussed her book "Who Framed Klaris Cliff?", and even answered two questions from our Book Club members. Thank you to Oxplore for organising the visit and for sending us a copy of Nikki's book - our pupils all greatly enjoyed it and the live Zoom meeting.

Pupils had a great time at our recent Welcome Event, creating bookmarks, button pin badges, blackout poetry and ink drawings using recycled materials. This ties in well with our recycling theme for this year's National Poetry Day in October.

The Library will be hosting origami workshops and other upcycling craft events over the coming weeks. We are delighted so many pupils took part in our first workshop and seemed to all have great fun!
