Celebration of Reading at the Hive, Worcester

Our year 7 librarians had a wonderful day out at the Hive, meeting with other Worcestershire schools who are part of the Worcestershire Children's Book Group.

They had a tour of the Hive, took part in a Book Blitz and other reading activities before meeting the author Jamie Russell.

Chris Evans - Author event.

We were really excited to welcome the author Chris Smith to school on 26 May.

Chris introduced his fantastically funny new book Frankie Best Hates Quests to years 5 & 6 in an event full of epic adventure!

Thank you to our Year 7 librarians were able to help at the event, taking photos and making sure all the books were handed out so they could be signed by Chris.



LIBRARIANS - what we do


One of our librarians has written this description about the role of a librarian.

"As librarians, we come in on our day at break time and lunchtime and sort out the AR books, fiction and non fiction books. 

We also do labelling, stamping and covering of the new books.

Other jobs are to help others find and choose books and to keep the library tidy and organised."


Mrs Burton says

" I am very fortunate to work in a lovely new library with an amazing selection of books, many of them new. The Librarians play a very important role and I could not run the library without them!

A different team of librarians are on duty each day.  Their main role is to sort all the books out and put them away in the correct places so that the library is always ready for pupils to come and find their next book."
