Lots of Library news!
Forthcoming events, Book Club and Activities for half-term! Find more information below.
Book Week – Monday 27 February to Saturday 4 March
Writer and poet AF Harrold will visit The Pilgrims’ School on Tuesday 28 February, meeting pupils in the Pre-Prep, Junior and Senior School. We look forward to welcoming him. AF Harrold is also sending us a postcard every week, and you will be able to see these messages in the newsletter for the remainder of this term. The first one is below. A letter will be sent to parents next week with further information about AF Harrold’s visit.
One of AF Harrold’s books is also the Years 3 and 4 Book Club choice, Fizzlebert Stump: The boy who run away from the circus and joined the library.
As mentioned last week, Thursday 2 March is World Book Day, and we will celebrate by dressing-up. There is no specific theme - pupils are invited to think of a character from one of the books they love. We look forward to seeing all the creative details!
Book Club is a way to encourage children to read titles they would not necessarily select and to discuss them in an informal setting, while enjoying delicious cakes. It is a fun way to build precious skills, and we encourage every boy to take part. The choices this half-term are:
- Years 7 and 8: When the Sky Falls by Phil Earle
- Year 5 and 6: The Lion Above the Door by Onjali Rauf
- Years 3 and 4: Fizzlebert Stump: The boy who run away from the circus (and joined the library) by AF Harrold
Boys must have read the whole book to attend the relevant Cake Break, which will take place during the week starting Monday 5 February. A sign-up sheet is available in the Library.
Activities for half-term
This year, COWfest takes place on Saturday 11 February. The festival will have a hub at the ARC on Jewry Street with additional free activities offered at several venues across the city centre. This link gives an outline of the activities on offer.
