The Roving Bookfair!
Yesterday, we were visited by the Roving Bookfair - a travelling book fair carrying quality books and educational posters. We were delighted to welcome so many of you in and teachers were blown away by the excitement among the children - it was wonderful to see such enthusiasm towards books and reading!
By the end of the day, Rob (the owner) informed us the total taken over the day was....one thousand pounds, which gave the school £200 commission to spend on books for classrooms.
As a team we discussed whether we should make an order at a later date or choose our new books now...and of course, we could not wait! We have selected some really excellent books, some for simple reading pleasure, some that tie in with upcoming curricular topics, and some that the School Council had informed us children wanted more of in school.
We will be showing off these books in Friday's assembly and then distributing them to the classrooms next week.
Thank you for your support yesterday, and we hope you enjoy sharing your new books with your children.
