A Scholastic travelling book fair visits the school twice a year. This fun, pop up event is a chance for pupils, staff and parents/carers to celebrate reading. The book fair lasts for one week allowing parents and children to browse and purchase books before and after school.
The book fair is met with excitement; children participate in various reading related activities such as a story swapping, designing book covers or dressing as their favourite book character.
Children are encouraged to help to run the fair, taking on customer service, advertising and display specialist roles.
For every book sold at the fair, the school receives up to 60% commission to spend on books for the school library.
Thanks to parent/family support we earned £633.64 last term. This has enabled us to buy new dictionaries and thesauruses for each class and added new titles to our guided reading selection.
Your support of these events is greatly appreciated.
