Norfolk library service have launched an ebook club. ‘The train to impossible places’ by P.G Bell is the next book.

All of the titles will be free to download using the Libby app on tablets/phones (and there will be enough copies for everyone that wants to read it). You will need a library card and PIN to be able to access the books. If you need to join the library, you can do so by using this link, the details you need will be sent by email.

 If anyone has any difficulty downloading ebooks you can email and they will do their best to help.

I have also been adding book puzzles to the classroom. You can find them in the ‘other’section.

J.K Rowling has released a new book! It is a fairy tale that she used to tell her children when they were younger and will be published online in installments. You can read it here. There is also information about a competition to illustrate the book on the website.

I know from our assemblies and performances that you are great singers and enjoy a sing-a -long so you can access the sing up website (that we use in assembly) at home.
