Book Tokens and Share a Story

Your child has brought home their £1 World Book Day token that can be used at the Shetland Times Bookshop or used to buy a book from our next Book Club magazine.

The children were also given home a “Share a Story” sheet that suggests lots of fun ways to encourage reading at home.  Please share any successes with us…we’d love to hear about your reading journeys!  Some achievements have already been celebrated on the Shetland Library Facebook page!

There are lots of reading ideas on the World Book Day website.  Please see the link below.  Happy reading P1/2!

World Book Day

We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day today and were delighted that Mrs Fiona Henderson could be with us to celebrate too!  Our day started in the Library where we got to change our books.  Then we looked at all the tatties, fruits and stones that pupils decorated as their favourite story characters.  The winners are yet to be announced!  We had a special Assembly where we did a quiz and were handed out our £1 book tokens.  Mrs Henderson read us a story but didn’t tell us the title or show us the cover.  We went back to class to draw and write down our own ideas.  We all enjoyed celebrating the joy of reading!

Robot Rumpus!

P1/2 have started to prepare for World Book Day.  We have read and enjoyed “Robot Rumpus!” by S.Taylor and R.Collins.  Today, the children were asked to think about what jobs they would like a robot to help them with.  They named their robots and started to create them using different craft materials.  The next step will be to write about what their robot does for them, to accompany their pictures.  Here are a few photos of our work in progress!



Everyone Reading In Class

Since World Book Day, P1/2 have been enjoying the challenges of reading all sorts of different texts at home and at school.  They are enjoying reading alone, with a partner and in small groups.  They have been really keen to share their reading with the class and have written book reviews at home to tell us all about their favourite stories.  Please look through our gallery of photos.  It is clear to see the enjoyment, concentration, peer support  and potential for learning.
