Libraries and Leadership for Infants and Juniors

Avid readers in the Infant and Junior School enjoyed an extra special assembly to launch the School’s newly refurbished Junior library.

Gathering in the Hall, the pupils were visited by some very important literary guests including William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and even Billy Casper from Kes!

Infant Class teacher, Mrs Beckwith talked the pupils through the library’s new facilities which includes an all-new genre-specific shelving system, as well as a wild card ‘Killer Reads’ section.

The pupils were also invited to get artistic and come up with their own creations as part of a competition to design the ‘Read’ display at the heart of the new library. The winner will work with the School’s in house design team to bring their creation to life.

After hearing a funny anecdote about tadpoles from Billy, told to him by his friend Anderson, keen readers were invited to join the special guests in a ribbon-cutting assembly to mark the occasion.

The pupils have already been enjoying their time in the new library and our newest Junior School librarians have been enjoying the responsibility of looking after their new reading area.

Meanwhile our newest Infant librarians from Year 2, Rianna, Eshaan, Libby and Teo have been getting to grips with their new leadership roles.

Recently refurbished thanks to a grant from CHSPA, the Infant library has been kept tidy by the new team, who have also helped other infants choose books and have even recommended their own choice reads.

Max, one of the former Infant librarians said: “I loved being a librarian because I love reading and enjoyed looking after our books.”
