The whole Kilmacolm school community was honoured and delighted to be awarded the ‘Raising Attainment in Literacy’ award at the Scottish Education Awards in June 2018…..follow us on Twitter and search #KPSLovesReading to see how we have made reading fun and cool in KPS!!
We celebrated WORLD BOOK DAY 2021……..despite the P4-7 children being at home during lockdown. The children who were in school spent the day reading, listening to stories and they even took part in a book Skavenger Hunt! The 4-7 children took part in a special book quiz on Teams! It was called ‘Win the Books’ (adapted from the Saturday Night Takeaway game ‘Win the Ads’). The children answered questions to win books for their class libraries! Click on this link to play too!
Have you met the KPS Book Fairies yet? They have their own Twitter account……..follow their adventures @KPSBookFairies. They live in our school grounds and they love watching us read! They have even made us a special fairy house that is going to be out outdoor library….we are so lucky!
