Our library is split into two areas covering Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
We use “Junior Librarian” software and a number of year 6 children act as librarians under the guidance of Mrs Deverell, Teaching Assistant/Librarian.
Each child in the school has their own unique, bar coded, library bookmark ticket.
The Key Stage 1 library is used by the class teacher and children are able to borrow books under their guidance.
The Key Stage 2 library is undergoing an exciting change! As we believe reading is at the heart of the curriculum, we have invested in some new books to engage readers. These books support our new reading scheme, Accelerated Reader, and come with a new system. Each book is allocated a number (e.g. 2.1) and children are given a number range (e.g. 1.4 - 2.6). Children will then select their own book from within their personal number range. These exciting new books will be stored in our library and are therefore part of 'Junior Librarian'. This means that every time the children borrow a book we will have a log of the name of the book and the date that it was borrowed on. So that everybody can enjoy these lovely new books, it is vital that they are brought into school daily for any reading opportunity throughout the day.
Once our new Key Stage 2 library is up and running, we will upload new pictures to show it in action.
