The library has been busy over the past few weeks! Thursday 1st March was World Book Day, but at Headlands Primary this year we celebrated with a whole WEEK of activities.
We had a special assembly run by Mrs. Carter and the 3 new Book Clubs. The children did excellently talking about their books and made their teachers very proud. Well done to Miss Harvey and her team for being victorious in the ‘Share a Story’ quiz!
All students also received their free World Book Day £1 vouchers – these are still valid until 25th March so get busy if you haven’t picked up your free book yet.
All week we were very busy in the library with the Scholastic Book Fair. We sold almost £1000 worth of books in total, which gave the school £600 to spend with Scholastic! Watch this space for an update soon on what we have bought. As a little teaser, I can confirm we have purchased some new dyslexia-friendly reads, several books recommended by the children in the ‘Library Suggestions’ box, and books for our…..coming soon…..dedicated graphic novels shelf. None of this would be possible without your purchases, so pats on the back all around.
The children also did sterling work with the Usborne Sponsored Read. More brilliant fundraising, with a total over £800! The winning classes for ‘Amount of money raised’ and ‘Number of minutes read’ all received special book-themed cupcakes. I may have sneaked a spare one and can confirm they were absolutely delicious! Special thanks to Year 6 who collected and counted all of the money.
Sadly, due to the snow, we had to delay Books at Bedtime – but do not despair, a rescheduled time will soon be announced.
What a super busy and wonderful week of bookish fun!
