Year R Fantastic Finish December 2020
Reception have been reading the book The Everywhere Bear by Julia Donaldson. After many weeks of suspense and wondering if The Everywhere Bear would ever be found we read to the end of the story and were delighted to find out he was reunited with Class 1 in the library. Lots of children in reception have not had chance to visit the library so our teachers arranged for our local librarian, Linda to come and visit us. Linda brought lots of lovely books with her to show us, she explained how libraries work and that they are free of charge! Lots of children are very eager to have their own library card and visit regularly with their families. The children were very excited to hear that they could borrow 15 books at a time and not have to pay a penny, one child commented "That's amazing!"
The children had prepared lots of questions to ask Linda to find out more about her job, they were also excited to hear that she had also read The Everywhere Bear and even had it in her bag. After all of the questions were ask Linda read the children another Julia Donaldson book 'The Go Away Bird!' This book was new to both the children and teachers and we all say mesmerised as Linda read.
A fantastic time had by all, Linda is looking forward to seeing some familiar faces in a local library soon.
