Not sure how to spend your summer? Why not pick up a book or two and escape to another world, join in a thrilling adventure or learn about something new?
The World Book Day website is brimming with ideas for books you might like to read or get some ideas for books. Why not check out Moor Allerton Library (Library near Sainsburys) as they might have some of them for you to borrow or you might find some other books too.
Why not sign up and join this year’s Summer Reading Challenge?
This year the theme is Wild World Heroes and is in partnership with the WWF. The focus is on taking action and helping combat plastic pollution and deforestation as more and more animals are being affected and are losing their habitats. Would you like to help the Wild World Heroes try and solve some of these threats to our environment and read a few books over the summer at the same time?
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.
The Grammar School at Leeds invited children in Years 5 & 6 to join them in attending an event with author, illustrator and poet, Chris White. They thoroughly enjoyed the session with Chris which was highly interactive and loved creating their own animals.
Dressed in Pyjamas and onesies children celebrated World Book Day both in school or at home. Stories were shared, quizzes were played while egg boxes and potatoes were transformed into well-loved book characters along with many other activities.
Remember WBD £1 vouchers can be redeemed until 28th March.
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.
