Advent


Our library has our very own Advent Calendar counting down to Christmas with a selection of the children's favourite books.

As part of our Christmas celebrations during the class sessions the children will be turning over the advent stars to discover a new book every day.


Inspirational!

Book Fair



We had a fantastic Book Fair in our bright and spacious New Conference Room.  There was lots of room for both books and people! 

All classes had a chance to visit the Fair as class library sessions where held in the Book Fair and the children had chance to browse the books, make wish lists and listen to new stories.



It is always an exciting moment for the children as having our own Fair is like having a bookshop in school.

Congratulations to all who came to support us.
Together we raised just shy of £2000.00.

This means that we have a sum of £1,100.00 to spend on new books for our school library which means there will be books for all.


Thank you to everyone for being part of yet another successful Book Fair.


Next Book Fair in March 2019
