Look at them and see what you think! Happy Hallowe’en!

PostHeaderIcon Halloween Spooktacular Trip to the ILAC Library 1st Class 2014

On Tuesday Ms. Creighton and Ms. Reeves’ 1st Classes were very brave and visited The ILAC Library for a Halloween Spooktacular! On the way there the children used their Maths Eyes to find shapes, numbers, time, clocks and money. In the library they met Brid the Witch who had lost her hat. She eventually found it on her head – how silly. She read the stories Room on a Broom and George and the Ghost for the children. Then they sang the Winnie the Witch Song for her. They also helped her to make up a story about a bat who had lost his Mummy.

After the story time Brid the Witch brought the children and parents in to the Children’s Library to choose some books. Some children got new Library Cards and others got to check their books out themselves at the special scanning machine. Books can be kept for 3 weeks and DVDs for a week. Don’t forget to return them or you will have to pay a fine.

A BIG THANK YOU to all the parents who were brave enough to join us for the Halloween Spooktacular. We really appreciate your continued interest and support.

Remember ALL LIBRARIES will be open over the mid-term break and many will have special activities on for children. So go and visit if you can!
