Hi Bookworms!

Check out the new pages on our library blog.  At the top of the blog there are now tabs which will take you to the new pages.

The first page is called  "What Shall I Read Now?" where you will find advice on how to choose your next book - there are suggestions and links to websites that might help you to find something awesome to read.

The next new page is called "Competitions" and that is where you will find any new competitions to enter and even win cool prizes.  We will have a new competition later in the term.

The third new page is all about "Research" and gives you loads of ideas about how to find out about a subject, along with cool kid-friendly search engines to make your research easier.

I bet the last new page is the one you will love the most!  It is called "Book Fun" and on that page there are loads of links to awesome websites about your favourite authors, books, series and characters.  This is where you will find all the fun and games.  Check it out!

These pages will be updated regularly, so keep checking.  I know there is something there for absolutely everybody!

Enjoy the new pages and happy reading, everyone!

Hello Bookworms!

Well, I hope you are all happy to be back at school and enjoying getting back into your learning.  I sure am happy to be back - I missed our lovely library, and seeing all your smiling faces every day!

Did you read, read, read over the holidays?  There's nothing better than finding a great spot in the shade, and lying on the grass with a really interesting book!

Yesterday I asked all of the Year 6 students who want to be student librarians to come and see me - well, 51 children turned up!  It is so great to know that so many of you love your library and want to be a part of it.  Well done, Year 6 children!

Have a look at this video showing author Oliver Jeffers - it's called "How I make picture books".  He has written and illustrated many books that are favourites in our library including:

  • Lost and Found
  • The Hueys
  • The Great Paper Caper
  • Up and Down
  • Stuck
  • Heart and the Bottle
  • How to Catch a Star
  • The Incredible Book Eating Boy

What a talented chap!
