Library Makeover

Exciting news, over the summer holidays the Library is going to have a makeover!

Miss Whiteley needs some help with thinking of some ideas of what the new Library should look like. Can you help?

Think about what sort of shelves, seating (could be beanbags, sofas, seating that is part of the bookcases), would you like tables and chairs, computers, what about the flooring? Also think about colour, what colours would you like? How about a theme such as Space or Under the Sea?

Your class School Council representatives will be talking to you about this so if you have any great ideas please tell them and they will let Miss Whiteley know.

Keep checking the Library blog for updates!

Tom Palmer Visit – 23rd February

Today, children in Years 4, 5 and 6 were thrilled to receive a visit from local author, Tom Palmer.

The children attended a session with Tom where he spoke about being a writer, about some of his books (he’s well known for his football and historically set books) before they asked him lots of questions as well as quizzing him about his other passion Leeds United. 

A small group of children in Year 4 were also invited to participate in a writing workshop with Tom from initial planning to developing characters and plot ideas before editing the beginnings of a very promising action packed Roman inspired story. 

Tom Palmer Visit

On Tuesday 23rd February, Tom Palmer will be visiting (virtually) children in Years 4, 5 and 6.

Each year group will have a session with Tom and a group of children from year 4 will have the opportunity to work with Tom on a writing project.
