Library: Understanding Fake News

Year 5 and 6 students learn strategies to identify fake news. Primary students welcome the return of Makerspace while High School students benefit from yet more new arrivals in the High School Library.

Primary School Library

Fake News

We’ve all heard the term ‘Fake News’ but to understand what it is and how to identify it, is not always an easy task.  It’s important for children and adults alike to question what they read and hear, so Ms Astrid has decided to give all of Y5 and Y6 students one lesson in how to identify fake news, by teaching them different strategies. It was great to see the children getting really into it and a fantastic effort was being made to further research the article, images and authors.

Makerspace

Makerspace was reintroduced this week after a very successful trial in Term 1. The children really enjoyed the different work stations, ranging from Makey Makey and Littlebits, to Mindfulness Colouring and Dash and Dot. It’s currently open to YR4 and YR5 but we are planning to extend it across all of KS2 during this term.

Books of the week

Great for story-time (age 3+): I Like Myself! By Karen Beaumont

High on energy and imagination, this ode to self-esteem encourages kids to appreciate everything about themselves—inside and out. Messy hair? Beaver breath? So what! Here's a little girl who knows what really matters.  At once silly and serious, Karen Beaumont's joyous rhyming text and David Catrow's wild illustrations unite in a book that is sassy, soulful . . . and straight from the heart. The sturdy board book is just right for little hands.

For younger readers (age 6+): Rainforest Riot (Adventure Park) By Cavan Scott

Emily, Jacob, and Frank go on safari, but find the animals are being attacked by strange creatures. Who is transforming animals into monsters? And what is wrong with Frank?

For older readers (age 8+):  Laugh Out Loud by James Patterson

Get ready to Laugh Out Loud (a lot!) with James Patterson's newest illustrated middle grade story!

Jimmy loves reading so much that he's inspired to start a book company for kids--run by kids. It's a big dream for a twelve-year-old boy--some would even say it's laugh-out-loud ridiculous!
But that doesn't stop Jimmy from dreaming even bigger! His company will be as imaginative and fun as Willy Wonka's chocolate factory...with a Ferris wheel instead of an elevator, a bowling alley in the break room, and a river filled with floating books! He just has to believe in himself and his idea. (And maybe win the Lotto.)
In this hilarious story filled with clever references to children's book favorites, James Patterson shows young readers that anything can be achieved if you believe in yourself no matter what!

Non-Fiction:  Mud, Sweat and Tears (Junior Edition) by Bear Grylls

Already a #1 London Sunday Times Bestseller, Mud, Sweat, and Tears is the adrenaline-fueled autobiography of the mega-popular star of the hit survival series Man Vs. Wild, adventurer Bear Grylls. A former British Special Forces commando, a man who has always sought the ultimate in dangerous challenges, Bear’s true story reads like an outdoors action and adventure novel. But Bear’s story is true—full of breathtaking escapes and remarkable exploits that would make any Jack London or H. Ryder Haggard hero proud.

There is a variety of genres and categories ranging from graphic novels, general fiction and non-fiction books to teacher resources. Also, it includes several award-winning books, for example “American Born Chinese” by Gene Luen Yang,  “The Girl Who Drank the Moon” by Kelly Barnhill, and best-selling books such as “Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That's Transforming Education” by Sir. Ken Robinson, one of the world’s most influential voices in education.  We are especially lucky to have a number of books written by Kazuo Ishiguro, the 2017 Nobel Prize-winning English novelist. The Libary staff have lots of recommendations for you so stop by and pick up something great to read.
