WANTED!

WANTED!

All of us have a favourite character from one of our most favourite books that we’d want to meet. Our Grade 3’s have started working on a WANTED poster, to track down their favourite character. What colour hair does he have? How does he act? Does he have any special features? The Grade 3’s worked hard to write a description of[Read More…]

Ready or Not….

Ready or Not….

Whether we were ready or not, Term 2 welcomed us with open arms.  “Non-fliction?” “Self-fliction?” “Un-fiction?” “Reflection??” ; these were just a few of the adorable attempts at remembering the super grown up words for  “fairy tales” and  “real information” books. In grade one we tried our best to remember the difference between a Fiction book and a Non-Fiction book. We have[Read More…]

Silence

Silence

The Library has been strangely quiet during this last week of school. Learners were only able to pop into the Library during break time because of Assessment Week. There was a mad rush on Tuesday, it seems as if everyone wanted to sign up for Library Monitoring. Thank you ALL for your enthusiasm. Remember to sign in when you come[Read More…]

Irresistible Week!

Irresistible Week!

This week was the last “normal” week of school for the term. We’re all looking forward to next week’s Human Rights day and school holiday. I’m not so sure if the learners are eagerly anticipating their assessment week, or dreading it, but I’m sure they’ll do splendidly. I’ll miss seeing you all in the Library. I have thoroughly enjoyed this[Read More…]

Lights OUT in the Library!

Lights OUT in the Library!

We had a quiet start to the week with the grade sevens being away on camp, but the grade 6s soon livened up the Library with their strong personalities and love of talking. Tuesday proved to be quite challenging with the electricity being off for quite some time. Books were piled high in anticipation of being “returned” onto the system.[Read More…]

Little Library Researchers

I cannot believe that we are heading into the 8th week of school. The weeks are flying by! Teacher Marian’s class visited the Library for a story ‘Curious George Visits the Library‘. They opened up their listening ears, rested their teeny hands in their laps and tried their best to keep their wriggly bodies still on the mat to hear[Read More…]

14 Days of Library Love …

14 Days of Library Love …

Hearts, chocolates, roses and love letters… Valentine’s Day has turned our boisterous boys into letter writing gentlemen and our girls into blushing beauties. When writing what we loved about our LIBRARY, some got confused and confessed their undying love for their group member.   Although this week has been filled with hearts and excitement, work had to be done. Our[Read More…]

Raise Your Hand if You Love to Read!

Raise Your Hand if You Love to Read!

Monday, 28 January, was the start of a very exciting week. For the learners, this was the first week of interchange and for me, this was the first week of having classes in my Library. Gone are the days where library was a time spent in absolute silence; the Grade 7’s created quite a buzz of excitement as they worked[Read More…]

Irresistible Books for Irresistible Reading

Irresistible Books for Irresistible Reading

Typing, printing, labeling, covering, laminating, guillotining and wrapping my brain around the Dewey Decimal system – just a few of the things that I’ve spent my time doing in the Library. 2013 was welcomed by a massive pile of new books, so be sure to bring your library bag and be the first to read them! Mrs Melita Porter and[Read More…]

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”

An interesting observation by Ray Bradbury.  We should never stop reading. This years sees a new librarian. We welcome Emma-Jane Fautley to the library. She spent her primary school years at Sun Valley Primary, joined the GAP Programme and is now moving into the library as a fully-fledged staff member.  Emma follows closely on the heels of two wonderful librarians[Read More…]
