Book Buddies

Our Actions: Provide opportunities for pupils to become ‘Book Buddies’ when visiting the library with their classes.

We aim to:

  • Promote and encourage the participation of pupils in the First Ministers Reading challenge.
  • Provide opportunities for reading for pleasure for all pupils throughout the school year.

What have we achieved so far:

  1.  Reading questionnaire for whole school.
  2. Design and ‘decorate’ P3 and P5 reading nook.
  3. Created World book day posters to encourage whole school participation.
  4. Wrote a list of ideas to share with classes to encourage shared enjoyment of reading.
  5. Made book recommendations bookmarks for the library.
  6. Created our own characters in groups and wrote a story including our characters. We then acted our stories out in small groups.

The next chapter for Book Buddies:

  • We hope to have a visit from Dunblane Library.
  • We are looking into an author visit.
  • We are hoping to set up a paired reading scheme with parents in our renovated library.
