The Year 2's and 3's came in to make some library observations which we put up on the board and discussed. The idea was to make them draw their own conclusions about how the Library is organised which will reinforce their knowledge much more than us just standing up and telling them how it is done.
The 24 Hour Library
self publishing for eight year olds
The Tregelles Challenge: A Year 4 Collaborative Project
taking action: library initiative in nepal
Nepal Youth Foundation: Olgapuri Children's Village
Many of the books have been given by Peak School and other Hong Kong donors.
Peak School Library hopes to be able to collaborate with the children of Olgapuri in the future and we will seek ways in which we can help out and 'take action'.
One way is to donate a book on birthdays (instead of cupcakes for the class) and bring it in to the Library where we will send it to the orphanage in Kathmandu to help the children there benefit from good books.
Learning the Decimal System and sorting the non-fiction books into categories.
Donated books arriving from Hong Kong - happy days!
The younger children come in to enjoy the library at Olgapuri Children's Village, Nepal.
... and, parents, just one final note!
From the Peak School website (www.ps.edu.hk), just go to Learning At Peak tab and click on Library. In the box at the top of the page, just type in the title that you are looking for and you can see if we have it, and if it is 'in' or 'out'.
