A Thank You from Rainbow House

You may remember our used-book sale back in November where we raised THB 16,550 for the Rainbow House charity. I would like to share with you a lovely thank-you letter that we recently received. The charity, which helps and supports disabled children and their families, was very grateful with the donation and would like to thank the STA Community.

We will have another used-book sale coming up soon, which will take place during Primary Book Week, so please feel free to start donating any books  you might have at home (and earn yourself some house points!). We would be very grateful if these books could be in a clean and good condition.

Sustainability Week

Book Week T-shirt competition

It’s not too late to submit your entries for our fantastic  “Design a Book Week T-shirt” competition.  All children from Reception to Y6 can participate! We are asking the children to make a drawing that shows a Love for Reading.

All entries get 2 house points and the winning design 5 house points – plus a t-shirt! (Two winners will be chosen, one from Rec-KS1 and one from KS2)

Because we will also print pin buttons with the same winning drawing, please ensure that you use the template (to be collected from the Library), as the design needs to be a specific size.

Books of the week

Great for story-time (age 3+): Mouse Trouble by John Yeoman & Quentin Blake

The grumpy miller is having mouse trouble, so he buys himself a large tabby cat. Fortunately for the mice, the cat is too unfit to catch even a single mouse. But when the miller loses his temper and threatens to drown the poor tabby, the mice decide they must intervene, as they have grown surprisingly fond of him.

For younger readers (age 5+): Class Pets: A Branches Book (Missy's Super Duper Royal Deluxe #2) by Susan Nees

Missy's second adventure is just as fun-filled as the first one!

This series is part of Scholastic's early chapter book line called Branches, which is aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

Missy has BIG plans for the class pet . . .well, for three of them! She plans to have a fashion show, create a circus, and even put the pets in their very own parade. But a mean new girl in class, Tiffany, says she's taking the pets home with her instead. Missy enlists the help of her trusty friend, Oscar, to come up with a stellar plan. Just like with everything else, Missy takes the class pets home the only way she knows how--the super duper royal deluxe way! This is the second book in this humorous, full-color early chapter book series.

For older readers (age 8+): Nerds Book 1: National Espionage, Rescue, and Defense Society by Michael Buckley

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 (8+): Fizzing Physics : Fantastic Hands-On Activities by Steve Parker

Science Crackers is a great series for all budding scientists wanting to understand the world. With a back-to-basics approach to the core topics, these books investigate science in a clear and concise way. Simple, practical activities will help children understand how science is relevant to their everyday lives.
