The Library has had an enjoyable term; Mrs Cox continues to update our displays which have included all things autumn. Books on the seasons and things to make during those times continue to be very popular reads in the library.
Children from Redwood Class had the opportunity to write down what Christmas is to them. We had some delightful responses, including “Christmas is spending time with my family and friends,” “Christmas is having a lovely Christmas dinner,” “Christmas is about the birth of Jesus,” “Christmas is playing games,” and “Christmas is about Santa and presents.” As you will see in the photograph, these slips made a lovely Christmas tree display in the library too!
Although we have experienced technical difficulties this term in the library and borrowing books has at times been problematic, children have enjoyed taking part in library skill activities, sharing book reviews and telling and listening to stories. The last weeks are always fun when we get to share various Christmas story titles, as well as reading how different countries and cultures celebrate their various celebrations and festivals.
Harry Potter and Diary of a Wimpy Kid are still very popular reads together with anything from Roald Dahl and David Walliams. For our YR2 / 3 Return to the Library of Doom series are proving popular with our children that like something a little scary! Graphic novels have been much borrowed by all year groups, with “My lst Graphic Novel” series very much enjoyed by YR1 / 2 readers. For reception years, the majority of our resources have been replaced with new titles, but of course keeping all the fairy tale favourites in place!
Have a lovely Christmas. Enjoy snuggling up with your lovely children for Christmassy reads over the holidays!
