The Story Scrapbook completes its journey!

  




The Story Scrapbook has had a busy few weeks! 

First, it was delivered to Birch class in Year 6 for the week. The class chose The Final Year by Matt Goodfellow as their theme and produced a lovely display! Nevaeh and Adu, Birch class Spinebreakers, then returned the Story Scrapbook to the library before delivering it to Rowan class in Year 2 for their turn. 


Then, Iustin and Zyana, Rowan class Spinebreakers, returned the Story Scrapbook to the library after Rowan class in Year 2 had created some wonderful artwork on their chosen theme of Chocolate Planet by Beverly Brumfield for their display. Iustin and Zyana then delivered the Story Scrapbook to Nursery for their turn. 




Lastly, Prisha, Ronnie and Matei from Nursery returned the Story Scrapbook to the library. Nursery had produced a very creative display on their chosen theme of Commotion in the Ocean by Giles Andreae & David Wojtowycz.



That completes the Story Scrapbook's journey around the classes for this school year. We look forward to seeing what imaginative displays will be created when we return in September!

Urgent request - Returning borrowed library books

Please can you check at home to see if you have any Broadford library books (stamped inside/Broadford logo attached). If you do, please pass them to your child to return to the library asap, where our Book Monster is waiting to eat them! Thank you.

Library displays
We celebrated Insect Week in the library last week, with a lovely display of relevant resources.



New in the library
Occasionally, books are returned to the library in a bit of a sorry state, with missing or torn pages or other damage. This is why we have introduced the Book Hospital! Please return any damaged books to the box and we will do our best to repair them for other children to enjoy again.

This book was returned completely missing its cover!

We repaired it by creating a whole new cover and it has since been enjoyed by children again.




Book reviews
Albie in Year 1 was very excited to borrow a library book to enjoy reading at home. He chose School Gremlins. The book made him feel happy. 



Visitors to the library
Last week, we had some of our youngest visitors from Nursery who came to the library to share stories with Theo, our visiting Reading Dog.
