The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

This is an amazing short film, made with references to The Wizard of Oz - about a man who gets blown to a strange land, where books become his only companions.  It is beautifully made, and has been nominated for an Oscar this year.

It is 15 minutes long, so you may not be able to watch it in the classroom (although it would be stunning on an activboard!!), so I have posted the link in case you would like to watch it at home instead.  Enjoy!!

New Year, New Issues...

The Library will be open for classes -  and also on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes (from 1.00 to 1.30) from this week.  It will be great to have you all in the library again, it has been VERY quiet without you!!  Please return your Summer Reading books as soon as possible, and then you can come and choose some great new books to read...

The first display of the year is up now.  Come in and see your class creature on the wall!!
