The Reading Tree
A silver birch tree has magically appeared in the library but its branches are currently looking very bare. Each time children finish and return a book to the library, they will be invited to hang a paper leaf with the name of the book along with three words to describe it. Leaves will be available from the library or from individual classrooms so that all children can participate whether or not it is their turn to access the library. We're hoping that spring will come very early to the library. Watch this space!
Mrs Faulkner has been busy turning old unusable books into works of art. See if you can spot the new additions in the pictures below. If you have any old books at home that are torn or have pages falling out or missing, she would be delighted to receive them so that she can add to the collection!
From the author
Lots of authors have written to the children at St Andrew's to tell us about their books and to inspire us to read and write. Come and look at what they've sent us!
Don't know what to read next? Mrs Faulkner can recommend some books you might like to try. You might like to take a look at her reading record to see what she's been reading too!
