Primary School Library

Last Wednesday Mr Jose (Year 5 teacher & KS2 Technology Coordinator) and the library team organised the very first Makerspace session in the library! It proved to be a great success!

What is a Makerspace? A Makerspace is a collaborative learning space where children can develop their digital information, technological and creativity skills in a hands-on environment.

We had lots of work stations, such as Makey Makey, Lego, Dash and Dot, Mindfulness Drawing and Digital Book Reviews.

It's currently running every Wednesday lunchtime for Year 4 and Year 5 children. We are hoping to expand it in the near future to all KS2 children and on a more frequent basis.

Book Fair
 

From Monday 27th November until Friday 1st December we will host our quarterly new- and used Book Fair. We welcome Paragon Asia for the very first time to our school! They will be here from Monday to Wednesday and will sell the latest releases, all age appropriate, for our primary children. This is also a perfect opportunity to buy something for the holiday season. On Thursday and Friday we have invited Book Arena - a second-hand bookstore - to come and join us. So, in other words, fantastic opportunities all around to buy some great books either for yourself, a friend or for your children!

We are still accepting donated books for our used-book sale. If you have any books, in a good condition, to donate, please drop them off at the Library and earn house points by doing so!

For older readers (age 9+):
The War I Finally Won
by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
2011 lib 6

Her triumphant World War II journey continues in this sequel to the Newbery Honor–winning The War that Saved My Life.

When Ada’s clubfoot is surgically fixed at last, she knows for certain that she’s not what her mother said she was—damaged, deranged, crippled mentally as well as physically. She’s not a daughter anymore, either. Who is she now? World War II rages on, and Ada and her brother, Jamie, move with their guardian, Susan, into a cottage with the iron-faced Lady Thorton and her daughter, Maggie. Life in the crowded home is tense. Then Ruth moves in. Ruth, a Jewish girl, from Germany. A German? Could Ruth be a spy? As the fallout from war intensifies, calamity creeps closer, and life during wartime grows even more complicated. Who will Ada decide to be? How can she keep fighting? And who will she struggle to save?


Ada’s first story, The War that Saved My Life, was a #1 New York Times bestseller and won a Newbery Honor, the Schneider Family Book Award, and the Josette Frank Award, in addition to appearing on multiple best-of-the-year lists. This second masterwork of historical fiction continues Ada's journey of family, faith, and identity, showing us that real freedom is not just the ability to choose, but the courage to make the right choice.
