WELCOME TO THE LIBRARY ZONE
“The Adventure begins here”..
Our beautiful Library has moved. Each book was carefully packed away at the end of the summer term, the shelves dismantled, the furniture, posters, picture, stamps and stickers put away and the whole library was moved lock stock and barrel to a new but temporary home in the extended group room in the year four corridor.
We have carefully unpacked, re-shelved and reopened and the children are once again visiting, borrowing and enjoying the library.
We are looking forward to our big move next year and planning for our new library is already underway.
Our library is a very special place. We all move through our school using the spaces, classrooms, hall and grounds but it is only in our library where children of every age-group come to share their thoughts and ideas on books, to recommend, support, to chat, make new friends, to help each other. In our library we are also able to challenge, broaden and expand the children’s reading choices, supporting you and the work of their teachers in helping to develop each child’s reading ability.
The children themselves, after a whole school consultation, came up with the guidelines by which we live in our library.
- Everyone is welcome here
- Remember the Library is a peaceful place
- Use soft and quiet voices
- Respect and care for our books and surroundings
- Come here to study, read, relax and reflect
- Share this space with others quietly and calmly
- Always set a good example for others to follow
