Book Swap

Dear Parents


As a school we are focusing on encouraging the children to read more.  We know through research that reading improves children's performance across the curriculum.


We plan to hold a "Book Swap" as part of our World Book Day celebrations on Friday 2nd March 2018.  This will be a wonderful opportunity for the children to share books that they have enjoyed with other children in school.


How it will work:-


Week commencing 26th February, the children bring up to 5 books into school to swap.  We ask that the books are in a good condition, with no ripped, torn or missing pages.  No drawn or coloured in pages.  No magazines.


If a child brings in more than 5 books the extra books will be deemed as donations to the school book swap.

The number of books a child brings in will be recorded and then they will be able to take home the equivalent number of books on the day of the swap.


The swaps will take place on  Friday 9th march at 3.30pm,  Friday 16th March at 3.30pm and Thursday 29th March at 3.30pm

We hope that that all the children will participate in this event.
