Welcome back to the new year! We have some exciting news for all our budding readers! We have a new Library! We were very lucky to be awarded a grant from The Foyle Foundation to help fund this.
We are still in the process of ordering books and organising the layout but hopefully it will be up and running soon. Children will be able to visit the Library for ‘Reading for Pleasure’ time and lessons with their class and class teacher.
Our first delivery of exciting books!
WE can’t wait for our grand opening! Look out for dates during parent workshops where adults can get a chance to visit!
We also have a Scholastic book fair coming up in November. Every book bought at the fair, gains money for the school to spend on more books! We can never have enough!! Thank you to everyone that purchased books at our last fair back in June. It raised over £400 for the school to buy books for reading corners.
Last year we had an author visit from Harrison.G.Sansostri. We have some signed copies of both of his books I our Library. We plan to have more author visits throughout the year.
You can find out more about Harrison and his first book published on his website at-
Other Books to look out for!
If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, you will probably
love the new book ‘Fantastical Beasts’ by J.K.Rowling.
Some of the beasts will be familiar to readers of the Harry Potter books – the Hippogriff, the Basilisk, the Hungarian Horntail … Others will surprise even the most ardent amateur Magizoologist. Dip in to discover the curious habits of magical beasts across five continents.

For older children, The Goldfish Boy is a book about a twelve-year-old boy, Matthew, is trapped in his bedroom by crippling OCD. Until one day his neighbour disappears and he must become a detective to solve the mystery.
This story is perfect for fans of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and Wonder. It is a book that will make you laugh and cry.
If you have read a book that you would like to share with the school, please see me to get it published on this page.
