Today the Primary 1s wrapped up warm and walked down to Peebles Library to meet Alastair Chisholm, a Bookbug Finalist for 2019.
Before we went into the library, the children had a look at the war memorial, poppies and wreaths which we had been learning about. The children were very respectful and enjoyed seeing poppies in “real life”.
We explored the children’s area of the library before we went to the museum. Many of the children were keen to share books with their friends.
After this, we met Alastair and he read us his book ‘The Prince and the Witch and the Thief and the Bears’. We spoke about our favourite characters and designed our own front cover for the book.
We are looking forward to exploring the book further during the week. Please join us for our ‘Stay, Play and Learn’ session tomorrow from 2.30 if you can. All of the children will receive their Bookbug bags from a special guest!
