Library News

Great news we have some new books in the mini libraries on North and South. They are on Accelerated reader and we will be adding more new books as we go so make sure to keep an eye out. 
Year 7’s have mini libraries in their bubble areas. North LC6N, South in H block where you can come and have a look or read during registration, break and lunchtimes on the days Mrs Helliwell is on site.

Our local county council has an app for borrowing books as part of the local library. The ebooks are free.  All you need is to have either an existing library membership or have a virtual library membership which you can apply for online with your parents/carers permission. 
To do this go to the link below and follow the instructions.

Next Terms Competitions are:
Star Reader - Students read and quiz their library books and books from home. Every time they pass a quiz at 85% or above they receive a star on the wall which then goes into a hat at the end of the term and a winner is pulled. One for each site. 
Form Word Count Competition - We have launched a competition between form groups in year 7 on both sites. It started the first week back and runs until the last week of the term. Everytime a student reads and quizzes the number of words they have read is added to a class word count. The form at the end of the term that has read the most words will win a prize for their form to enjoy. Which form is going to win? Watch this space to find out.


More competitions coming your way next term. So be sure to keep an eye out.
