We had a great time during Book Week! Lots of exciting activities took place in the Library at lunchtimes, including a visit from Dave Cryer on World Book Day and a fun competition all week.
Here’s a fun video of what we did during the week!
Monday 1 March – Brilliant Book Trailer Show
On the Monday, we had a film show with a difference: book trailers and author videos. Book trailers are great little videos that tempt you to read a new book. There are also some really awesome videos from authors available. Here is an example:
Love this great video from a school in the USA!
If you want to see the videos we showed, or keep an eye out for new ones – then watch Library Online’s YouTube Channel. Mrs Robinson will “favourite” videos as she finds them.
Tuesday 2 March – Year 6 Book Quiz
Four teams from Year 6 entered our first ever Year 6 Book Quiz. Each person who entered will get a prize, with a special prize for the winning team members.
The winning team were:
“Fatkid Pony Tellytubby Commandos”!!!!!!!!!
Wednesday 3 March – Book Swap
We tried something different on the Wednesday. After discussions with students to see if they were interested, a Book Swap was planned. Students were encouraged to bring in unwanted books and swap them with their friends – a quick and easy way of finding something new to read. Huge thanks to the staff who helped with this event.
Thursday 4 March – World Book Day with Dave Cryer
Lesson time: Year 7 met with Dave Cryer during the morning and Year 6 worked with him in the afternoon. Students really enjoyed developing characters and writing their own stories.
One student said, “I’ve just written more than I have ever done before!”
Mrs Robinson also wrote her own story! Some students are writing more chapters of their stories at home too.
The Reading Group met with Dave Cryer over lunchtime and had great fun in acting out scenes from Darren Shan’s books!
