Book Week begins on Monday 11th September. All pupils and staff are being challenged to read for at least two hours during the week.
Don’t miss your chance to join in the fun and win a prize.
The Winter Reading Challenge is into its second week but it’s not too late to take part. All you have to do is read SIX books from now until Sunday 8th January 2017.
This year’s theme is NUMBERS and LETTERS.
There are lots of ways that you can get involved.
Why not take part in the SPONSORED READ? You can download a form from here, ask your Tutor for one or pick up one from the school library. Simply show your sponsor form to gain entry to the BOOK CAFE, which will be held in the school library every lunchtime during BOOK WEEK, and enjoy a free piece of fruit, raisins and juice.
Meanwhile, in the corridor outside the library at lunchtime for BOOK WEEK and the week after you will be able to buy books and stationery from the Scholastic Book Fair.
The Blurbie competition is back. Dress Blurbie as a character from a book and you could win a prize. There will be a special prize for the design that best represents this year’s theme. Tutor groups will be given the opportunity to vote for their favourites.
S1 pupils will be taking part in the annual BOOK HUNT. The book badges worn by staff, Library Assistants and some senior pupils all have on them the picture and name of a book, available in the school library, that fits this year’s theme. To win, all you have to do is write down as many of the 100 book titles as you can. Hint: Don’t forget the office staff and janitors!
In your Tutor Groups you can try our two NUMBERS and LETTERS competitions. For the first, you’ll need to know your book titles and apply your maths skills if you want to win a class prize. To successfully complete the second quiz, you’ll need to find the 10 fact sheets scattered throughout the school. You can also have a go yourself, if you wish. Just pick up a competition entry form from the school library.
There are lots of prizes to be won and fun to be had – so don’t miss out!
Have a great BOOK WEEK!
