We have all of these books in the school library and I'm sure they are going to be very popular.
We also enjoyed daily activities in the library at lunchtime. Monday saw us making Oil Pastel night drawings from “THERE'S NO SUCH THING" and emotion seed pods from “NO! NEVER!", Tuesday had us embracing scratch art hands to celebrate our families with “WHO'S YOUR REAL MUM?", Wednesday was sock puppets to get rid of our “WORRY MONSTERS", Thursday was realising that an “ANEMONE is not our enemy" and Friday we created our own ELLIE'S DRAGON's" eye, to watch over us.
