Our Simply Books Book Fair will be arriving on Monday 15th October!
Simply Books (at Burnby Gardens) will be providing books for our Book Fair again this year.
Many of the books will be discounted, and will be on sale until 4pm after school each day that week. School will receive a commission from the book sales, which we will use to order books through Simply Books, so any sales will be benefiting a local business as well as the school.
We hope you will be able to come and have a browse!
And please remember that Simply Books (at Burnby Gardens) will be open throughout the year for your literature needs. Have a look at their website for details and support your local book shop!
Mini-Book Cover Competition
To get us all in the mood (and give the children a chance to win some Book Fair vouchers) we are having a little competition. The challenge this year is to design a mini book cover, using the template found here on the school website. It can be for a completely made-up book or one of your favourites, but we would like to see original work, not just a direct copy! Feel free to use whatever materials you like – paints, felt tips, collage, etc. Older children can gain extra points by writing a blurb on the back, but, as before, we want to see your own words, not just a copy off a real book.
Entries need to be handed in by Monday 8th October for judging. We hope the children enjoy thinking about books, and we really look forward to seeing the results!
(Alternatively, you could open this picture of the template in a new tab and print it out – half A4 will be the right size)
We’ll see you at the book fair!
