We had another very successful Kinokuniya Book Fair last week! I hope everyone took the opportunity to buy some great summer reading! And speaking of summer reading…
Don’t forget our fantastic summer reading competitions!!
The first competition is our Summer Reading Challenge! This is a great competition suitable to all children who can read independently, whichever level they are on. It encourages the children to read different kinds of books and genres.
We’ve run this competition last year and it proved to be very popular! It’s more or less the same as previously, with the exception that you can now collect points and the House that collects the most points will win the competition. Everyone who participates will get a fantastic pin button upon return in Term 1 to celebrate their personal achievement! You will also be allowed to borrow books for over the summer if you join the reading challenge. (competition open to all children YR1 to YR5)
Read, Review and Recommend it Forward
This is a fantastic competition to get to know our Library system, Destiny, better plus it is also very useful to your friends, as it can really help them in choosing their next book to read.
We will be notified each time a student has submitted a review and/or recommendation and only after approval will it go live on Destiny.
More information on how to join, can be found in the email we’ve sent you last week. If you are not sure, please come and see us in the library.
Last but definitely not in the least, never underestimate the importance of reading a book that you enjoy. Read for pleasure, fun, exploration and wonder!
Please return all your Library books
Please can everyone ensure that all our library books are returned this week? If you are participating with our Summer Reading Challenge, you can borrow books for over the summer but please make sure you’ll let our library staff know, so that we can amend the due date accordingly. Thank you.
