Our library has seen great improvements recently, with a wonderful new selection of fiction and non-fiction books. In October our Year 5 and Year 6 class visited Waterstones in town as part of Reading Week. Here they learnt about how a bookshop is operated, and had the opportunity to buy a selection of books for the school library – all their own choices.
Some of our new and exciting authors include:
Elizabeth Laird – ‘Oranges in No Man’s Land’, ‘Kiss the Dust’ and ‘The Garbage King’
Sue Limb – ‘Absolute Torture’ – more of hers to follow!
Soman Chainani – ‘School and Good and Evil’
Liz Pichon – ‘Tom Gates’
Na’ima B Robert – ‘From Somalia with Love’
Judith Kerr – ‘When Hitler Stole pink Rabbit’
Jo Nesbo – ‘Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder’
Clarice Bean - ‘Utterly Me’
Come and read our fabulous book reviews in the library and on the Year 6 window. They’ll give you great advice about which books to try!
We have an amazing monthly newsletter for the library, which is written solely by 2 children from the School Council in Y6. It’s a fabulous read, and gives you up to date information, quizzes and latest author/books we have.
In each class in KS1 and KS2 we have a class novel which we read each half term. These are high quality texts, from super authors. These include: Julia Donaldson, Michael Morpurgo, David Almond (Skellig), Betsy Byars, Anne Frank’s Diary and Berlie Doherty
