Booking in

A  library is a key place in any school.
From the outset , one of our great aims has been to get  our Happy House children reading and to get them really thrilled and excited about books.
So getting our library well-stocked is key to this, which is why we have put so many books on our Christmas wish list.
Each child will receive a book this Christmas, complete with a bookplate with their name inside.
Once they have read and enjoyed their book, they will be asked to keep it in the library so that whilst it is still their book, it can be also be enjoyed by their brothers and sisters.
Madam Cathy, who works at our school and looks after the library, is fostering a love of books and all classes have library lessons.
In these lessons they are encouraged to borrow books, to read and to talk about their choices and told how to care for them.
We hope, eventually, with support and help of others, we will have books on every subject and they will open a window on a wider world for or kids.
We are so grateful to everyone who has sent a  parcel, or a gift from our wish list for our children for Christmas. Many have been anonymous and we haven't been able to say an individual thank you. But we want you to know just how much we appreciate your love and generosity.
If there is still anyone who would like to donate a book please take a look at our Amazon wish list:
