Since author Guy Bass opened our brand new School Library back in February 2014, we have been very busy in our quest to encourage the children to enjoy reading for pleasure.

 More children than ever took part in the Summer Reading Challenge at their local library.  We celebrated World Book Day with an Extreme Reading competition and prizes were given for the most unusual places to read.

 During the year a wide range of people from the world of literacy have visited our school, including award winning authors Dan Freedman, Paul Geraghty and Ali Sparkes, who was accompanied by her illustator Nina Lazarski.

Another very popular visitor to our School is local author and illustrator, Simon Chadwick, who wowed us all with his amazing cartooning skills.

We have had some lovely storytelling events too.  Year 3 and Year 4 were treated to tales from local storyteller, Christobel Thomas.  

We also held a special event in December, when children returned to school during the evening in their pyjamas for festive stories and hot chocolate around the Christmas tree

We have enjoyed two visits from the wonderful 2 Steves (Steve Barlow and Steve Skidmore), who put on amazing iHero and Action Dog shows and hosted creative writing workshops with some of our pupils.

It has been a very enjoyable and busy time in the Library and we would like to thank parents for all their support with the many events and for helping to develop a love of reading with the children.
