This month's news roundup...
INFO LIT IN THE LIBRARY
What is Information Literacy?
How To Find a Book
Picture Books are organised by first letter of the last name of the author.
Chapter Books are organised by the first 3 letters of the author's last name.
Non Fiction books are organised by the Dewey Decimal system where numbers denote the subject categories.
With the huge proliferation of new platforms providing information on-line, it is vital that pupils learn how to navigate the web and disseminate the information they find. Just like finding an item in the index of a non-fiction book, students need to know where and how to find the things they are looking for on-line safely and efficiently.
A number of our Library Skills lessons teach some of these skills to support what they learn in class and their research at home.
How Parents Can Help
On Monday 5th February, Stuart Reid, author of the Gorgeous George series, will be performing his "Reading Rocks" event for the entire school and running workshops for the Year 3's to coincide with their How We Express Ourselves unit of inquiry. He has performed at 700 schools, libraries and book festivals and his one-hour presentations are designed to engage and inspire children, especially reluctant readers, with the joy of books through audience participation, fun and energy.
Book order forms with more details of the day will be sent home closer to the time.
