Book Week Scotland!

Happy Book Week Scotland!

Our S2 Literacy Leaders have been busy making posters around the school to celebrate reading!
They will also be visiting S1 classes during English time to award top readers of our First Minister’s Reading Challenge (so far!)

This Wednesday, we will have a whole school book swap in the foyer outside the canteen! Bring a book to swap and get a new one for a cosy night in reading!
Staff are invited to DEAR at a time of their choosing!

Happy reading!

Junior Book Club visit the Edinburgh Book Festival

On Friday 23rd August, Miss Lawrie took the Junior Book Club to the Edinburgh Book Festival to see MUHAMMAD KHAN & TOM POLLOCK: VIRTUAL REALITIES. Authors of two gripping and powerful new novels, they were taking a look at the world of internet-based relationships, rapturous online fandoms and cyber bullying.

In Book Club we read I am Thunder, Khan’s first novel and really enjoyed it. Having listened to him talk about his new book, Kick the Moon, we would really like to read this with the Book Club too!

We had a lovely day out in the capital hearing Steven Camden share how he creates unique and inspiring characters! A special reward treat for those who completed our Summer Reading Challenge!
