End of year in the Library

This week we have been concentrating on returning books so that we can start stocktaking on Monday.  Thank you for bringing your books in....and those of you who still have them at home, please, please try and remember to put them in your bags!!

For those classes that may have missed our book videos this week, and those of you who would just like to see them again, here they are... enjoy!

Time to return your books...


Once a year, we do a stock-take in the library, to confirm the numbers and condition of our books.  We need everyone to return their books by this Friday 30 November...and the first class to get all their books back (including their teacher!) gets a prize.  Pukeko and Ruru rooms have often been first and second - I wonder who will win this year?

This week, we were lucky enough to see a partial solar eclipse.  It was great to have some solar viewers, and the image of the sun mostly covered by the moon was amazing.  Here is a video with more information on eclipses, and how they happen.

Shelve the books!

This week, we have an library-themed game for you.
Help Lydia the Librarian get books to the kids before they get mad and leave - have you got a good memory?

Guy Fawkes Day

Monday is Guy Fawkes Day, and if we are lucky, the weather will be nice enough to allow some fireworks to be let off this weekend!  Do you know the story behind the day?  Or do you think you do?  Here's the Horrible Histories team explaining the events for you...
