While school is closed due to the Covid 19 crisis our Librarian will add links here to book-related activities which we hope your children will enjoy. A classroom has been created on our school G-suite domain called Library Club where there is an ongoing chat about book recommendations, the same links will be posted there.
If your child was absent from school when the classroom code was distributed, please email the school office and a code will be sent to you.
Many authors and illustrators of children's books have posted videos suitable for primary school aged children on YouTube. Please remember online safety advice, be present when your child is accessing YouTube, and ensure that the Autoplay function is OFF.
While schools are closed, Audible has made a wonderful collection of audiobooks available for children to listen to FREE OF CHARGE!

Learn to draw with Rob Biddulph!
The amazing children's book illustrator Rob Biddulph is regularly posting videos on his website which will teach you to draw some characters that you will recognise from books we have in school. I would love to make a display in the library of any artwork that you bring in when we all return to school.
An exciting stack of new books were purchased in March, in response to requests from pupils. We are very grateful to the Parent Fundraising Group for their generosity in funding these.
In the summer term of 2018 Mrs Earp had a vision to transform the old stock cupboard in the school hall into a library. With assistance from a team of Staff and Pupils this was achieved and we now have a gorgeous space dedicated to books and reading to encourage a culture of "reading for pleasure" !
Each class attended a "book tasting" picnic during September to look at a range of age-appropriate books and try out some authors or genres that they had not considered before.
Book displays outside the library change regularly and might just inspire you to pick up a new book!
We are always very grateful for the many generous donations of books that families give to our library and we are happy to listen to any requests or recommendations that pupils make.
