Welcome to our Library!
Mrs. Armitt is our Librarian
Each year public libraries across the country get involved in the Summer Reading Challenge, organised by The Reading Agency. In Hertfordshire, over 20,000 children took part in the 2016 challenge, The Big Friendly Read. Besides promoting reading for pleasure, the challenge helps to maintain children's reading levels so that they return to school in the autumn ready to pick up where left off at the end of the summer term. The aim of the challenge is to read any six books from their library during the summer holidays. There are rewards to pick up on the way and it's FREE to take part! All you need to do is sign up at your local library. Children who successfully complete the challenge receive a medal and certificate. They are also entered into a prize draw to win a ticket to an exclusive author event. The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge is 'Animal Agents', a detective team with a difference. Created by bestselling Horrid Henry illustrator Tony Ross, the clever creatures use their amazing natural instincts to solve a mystery at the library. For all the children who complete the challenge, we will celebrate their achievement at school in September and they will each receive a house point. You should have leaflet with all the information. Thank you …..Mrs Armitt

A BIG thank you to our parent volunteers who help in the library. You really make a difference - thank you!!
Thankyou to all the children who have donated special gifts of favourite books to celebrate their birthdays!
We are always very happy to receive donations of books, but please do make sure that all books are as good as new and appropriate for reading by our primary aged children.
Can you help.?..........Each class needs volunteers to help the children borrow and return books, if you can help in any class, please email Mrs Armitt - email@example.com or talk to your child's class teacher.
Training is given to all volunteers on how to use the computerised system, so don't worry!. Without your help our children cannot borrow books.
What 's been happening in our library?
(Most of these ideas below have come from the children and our wonderful library monitors.)
The library monitors do ask that children use the library as a quiet relaxing time and that they do not disturb other children who are trying to listen, otherwise they may be asked to leave.
If anyone has any more good ideas for the library our monitors would love to hear about them. So please do encourage your child to share any brainwaves with whoever is on duty that day.
How our Library System Works:
If there is an adult available to support the class, your child will be given the opportunity to borrow a book once each week.
Many thanks........Mrs. Armitt
