New books for the library

Yesterday, a very excited library group took delivery of hundreds of new books for the school library. The new additions will update and expand the stock of non-fiction books. The books were purchased with £1500 of the money raised by the recent sponsored read. The library reps can’t wait to get all of the boxes unpacked and the books on the shelves!

Scottish Children’s Book Awards Ceremony

A group of Primary 1-3 children were very lucky to be invited to the SCBA ceremony held in the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh last Wednesday. Authors and illustrators of the three short listed books were in attendance. There was great excitement as the winner was announced, “Robot Rumpus”. The children were able to purchase a copy of their favourite book, which they had signed by the author. A fantastic experience!





Book Week Scotland

Book Week Scotland is a week long celebration of books and reading. It was celebrated in school with exciting activities and a great assembly to which each class contributed. Mrs Black, Mrs Thomson and Mr Brice read the three books shortlisted for the Scottish Children’s Book Awards. We voted for our favourite and the winner was “Robot Rumpus”. We enjoyed listening to another teacher reading their favourite book, silent reading and paired reading where the older pupils read with the infant classes. One of the highlights of the week was the Treasure Chest challenge where we had to guess the name of a book from clues hidden in a treasure chest.  Thanks to the Library Group who organised the event.
