After a bit of a disruptive week in the Library during 'Book Week' we did have some activities happening.

The winners of the ART COMP have been decided and we had some wonderful entries. We even had a homeroom entry which was great. The winners were announced at a special celebration in the library.

Book trailer:
Dylan Lloyd & Dan Mitchell CH2 (for their amazing  book trailer of ‘The Very Bad Book’ – well done boys!
Winner - Charlotte Lyons VT3
Honourable mention – Harney Halls JR0
Written work:
Emily Patterson BK1
Honourable mention – Brandon Davis MK4

A big thank you to all the students that participated in the Art competition for book week. There are some very talented guys out there!

Our 'favourite book' tree was sprouting leaves left right and centre as staff and students wrote their favourite book on a leaf and pinned it to the tree. Some of the favs were:
The book thief by Markus Zusak
Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz
Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins
Harry Potter and the deathly hallows by J.K. Rowling
Diary of a wimpy kid by Jeff Kinney
Marlie and me by John Grogan
The twits by Roald Dahl

Lunchtime activities included making a sculpture from an old book. Students were shown how to fold the pages in different ways to create a hut. Fabulous bookmarks were also created using old books as inspiration.

A great form of recycling!
