National Poetry Day – 5th October

We will be celebrating National Poetry Day on Thursday 5th October.

Poems will be shared all through the week during library sessions along with a Poetry Trail for KS2 children. Classes will be learning a poem to recite per key stage in the following week’s assembly.

There is also a poetry competition: Write a poem linked to the theme ‘Refuge’ or ‘A Safe Place’. Winners will receive a book voucher. Poems should be written on the competition entry form and submitted to Miss Whiteley by the closing date of Friday 20th October.

Voting Time

The club were really excited this week – it was voting time!

Armed with their voting slips the children choose different areas of the library and then handed their completed slips into Miss Whiteley.

The votes were counted and the winner was…..

Loki: The Bad God’s Guide to being Good by Louie Stowell

The club then talked about why they had chosen the book that they had voted for.


This afternoon the group discussed the last shortlisted book that they had been reading over the holiday; Loki: a Bad Guide to Being Good

Their thoughts? Most of them loved it!

More Loki related activities today, completing their own ‘Gods’ and story starters, book covers and reviewed the book.

We are now nearing the end of the awards and voting for our favourite book will be taking place next week (14th September) – I wonder who will be the favourite?

Welcome Back!

If you have a school library book at home that you forgot to return before the summer holidays please bring it into school and hand to Miss Whiteley.
