Peak School Library Newsletter

February 2014


We are all abuzz.

Book week is 10-14th March this year and we are so looking forward to all the fun activities we have planned. There will be at least 4 visiting authors during, before and after the BOOK WEEK to talk about the very diverse range of books they write (see below). We will have workshops, storytelling, discussions and book signings for all ages throughout the school.

And that's not all of course! Everyone loves BOOK CHARACTER DAY when we dress up as our favourite BOOK character and participate in the school-wide parade - teachers included!

Plus loads more! We'll have book reviews, writing contests, quizzes, reading challenges, a parent's forum and Book Sale - those are just some of the great things we have planned.

Look out for more information in the next Peak View.

Excited? You should be!


Peak School children are not allowed to borrow new library books until all their books are returned and they can find this really disappointing, particularly when they see other children in their class choosing and borrowing books. Please would you help them to remember to bring their books into school on the following days:

  • Tuesday: Year 4
  • Wednesday: Year 1 and Year 2
  • Thursday: Year 5 and Year 3
  • Friday: Year 6
