What a super busy day we’ve had celebrating World Book Day at Kirkcolm! Our library monitors, Lydia and Taylor, organised a real life ‘Where’s Wally’ treasure hunt around the school by hiding 5 characters in the building and pupils took it in turns to find them. All pupils who got the answers correct were entered into a prize draw and 1 name pulled out for each class – the winners will be announced at assembly next week. The library monitors also held a book sale in the hall, selling books for 20p each. Almost every pupil in the school went home with a new book to enjoy reading!
In class, pupils were given the challenge of logging into their new myON account to explore it, read a book and take a quiz. P5-7 pupils also brought in their favourite book and wrote a book review for it, trying to encourage other pupils to also read their book. Primary 7 pupils spent some of the morning with the Nursery boys and girls for a bit of paired reading in the library.
All pupils will come home tonight with a sticker and a £1 book token – they can use this to purchase a £1 book from WHSmith or put it towards the price of another book they wish to buy.
