Black History Month
October is Black History Month and the National Literacy Trust have brought together a series of book lists for children and young people of all ages to share black stories and promote black voices. The age-appropriate book lists have been curated to help children, young people, families and teachers explore race, identity, family and community.
Our students are currently reading 'Noughts & Crosses' by Malorie Blackman as our Whole School Read and they can also visit the school library to find other books listed.
Library Scavenger Hunt
It has been fantastic to meet our new Year 7's this term and to welcome them and existing students to the Library. To celebrate 'Libraries Week' this month students were invited on their year group day to visit the library and take part in the Library Scavenger Hunt. It was lovely to see the Library buzzing with activity and so many students participating. We hope that everyone enjoyed themselves and perhaps learnt something new about the Library as well. Caitlin & Abigail were overall winners and prizes also went to Remi, Imogen & Isla who guessed the bonus question correctly.
