We have had a very busy day today, we had nearly 180 children visiting the library. Puffins and Penguins came for storytime where we shared The Queen’s Hat by Steve Antony and A Possum’s Tail by Gabby Dawnay, and went on a literary tour around London. The children pretended to be the swishing and swooshing wind which blew away the Queen’s Hat and pointed out all the places they had been. We visited London Zoo and spotted lots of animals and went for a ride on the London Eye.

Year 1 & 2 visit the library

All of the children in Year 1 and 2 visited the library today. We talked about the Hop Around Hampshire Reading Challenge and they chose books to start their journey, on topics including space, wild animals, countries and books set in other countries. In Dolphins class one of our children has already completed her reading challenge and was awarded her certificate.

We do hope all the children in Year 1 and Year 2 take part in our challenge. The children all seemed keen to start it with some children reading a book and getting signed off, during their visit to the library today.

The Hop Around Hampshire Reading Challenge has started today for all children in Year 1 and Year 2. Each child has been sent home with their own guide book of how they can make a journey around Hampshire through different types of books. We are hoping the challenge will help the children learn to enjoy a wider variety of books and develop their reading for pleasure.

They will be able to find these books during their visits to the school library on Thursdays or you can visit the public Library. Whitchurch Library have a good selection of books for each stage of the journey and if you’re not already a member it’s free to join.

All children who complete the challenge will be awarded with a certificate and entered into a draw to win a book token.

Welcome to the Library blog we will hopefully give you an insight to our very busy library. The library is looking very colourful at the moment after being turned into an Amazonian Rainforest by the year 5/6 children. This week the Library mobile has visited the school and we have selected the authors each class will be focusing on in our World Book Day celebrations. Watch this space for more details!
