Back to School 2015

Image from HERE
Welcome back to school for 2015. I hope you had a great time over the holidays and that you've been enjoying the sunny weather we've had recently. I also hope you found time to read some good books! If you think any would be great additions to our library then please come along next week and tell me all about them - just in case we haven't already got them!

This week in the library I'm updating the classroom lists and adding new students to the library database so that you're all in your correct classroom for 2015.

Next week things should be getting back to normal, with new books on display and the library will be open for classroom visits and also at lunchtimes.

See you soon.
