Author visit : We started our Book Week Scotland celebrations by inviting author Barbara Henderson into school. Barbara was here to talk to four S1 classes about her eco-thriller Wilderness Wars. The novel asks the question: what if nature fights back? and is a fast-paced adventure story which explores our relationship with nature.… Pupils found the talk really entertaining. Feedback was extremely positive
Throughout the week the following events took place:
- I am currently reading……….. posters appeared on classroom doors so pupils could find out what their teachers were reading.
- DEAR Library (Drop Everything And Read) took place in the library during Library club on Wednesday 13th November at lunchtime
- Most Despicable Character from a Book Competition. Pupils had to decide upon a character and give their reasons. We had a good response – Voldemort seemed to be the favourite!
- The annual Big Book House Quiz was held on the 20th November. Team Mo Bamba won with Dumbledore’s Army a close runner up.
