Wow! What a day! It’s been very busy but lots of fun.
First of all a HUGE thank you to everyone for donating £1 (and more in some cases!) Whether you dressed up as a book character or came in your own clothes, it is appreciated that you all joined in with the spirit of the day! We raised £176 and counting! We have also managed to find a company who will match the money we raised, to buy some new books. It will make a huge difference to the children and our school.
My second GINORMOUS thank you, goes to everyone who brought books in for our ‘book swap’ event. As you can see, we had lots of books to choose from. We tried as best as we could to make sure that the children who brought in lots of books, managed to take as many home! The children had such a lovely time choosing a new book. We chatted about our favourite authors and the children recommended books to each other. It was lovely to hear. We still have lots left and they will be put into our school library.
We’ve had lots of activities going on from a book scavenger hunt, peer reading, making bookmarks and year 2 even had a go at being shopkeepers at the book swap. (We worked so hard we needed a tea break!)
We hope you had a brilliant time, I also hope that if you took a new book home, that you enjoy reading it tonight!
Thanks again for your support!
If you need any help to choose books or to know how to support your child’s reading, please come and let me know! I’d be happy to help.
