Polar Bear - Killer King Of The Arctic

 

Hampshire Picture Book Award

Throughout the late spring and early summer terms 2021, Puffer Fish and Turtles will be reading, exploring and reviewing a selection of new picture books, provided by the School Library Service.  The aims of the award are to promote the enjoyment of reading, to develop visual literacy skills and pupil creativity.  These are the four shortlisted books:

Welcome back, everyone! 

As I visit each classroom in turn, it is wonderful to see all the happy faces of children ready and eager to listen and learn.

 

Sadly, the school library remains closed to pupils at the present time.  However, a trolley full of carefully selected fiction and non-fiction books has been placed in each ‘bubble’, from which your children have been able to browse and borrow items to take home.  As these books are returned to school, they are placed in quarantine, in large covered boxes in the library, for a minimum of 72 hours, in line with health and safety requirements.

 

Keep Safe and Keep Reading…

Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.’
