End of term and Yr6 Librarians!

Our Broad Heath Library wouldn’t function efficiently without our Junior Librarians. That is why it is sad to see our Yr6 JLs leaving us. Hopefully they will have learnt some new skills which they can use in their next school and beyond. The good news is that the Yr5 children will “step up to the […]

Visit to Waterstones Book Shop

Today the Broad Heath Junior Librarians visited Waterstones Book shop in the city centre. There was a brief tour of the shop (including places where the public aren’t allowed!) and time to purchase some books for the school library. Hopefully their own blogs will tell you what it was like! Come on Junior Librarians!

Library turns over a new page

Broad Heath Library has seen a few changes over recent weeks. The most important change is the introduction of a Library Admin Assistant, Mrs. Hanan Sherif. She has already made her presence felt with the initiation of new display materials and ideas to get the children reading. She is enjoying her new role and I […]

Library Update

The Library is looking great and we have just taken delivery of a large quantity of new books which will be available to borrow after Christmas. To see the new titles (and the old) you can download the iMLS app for iPad, tablet, phone etc. and log in as a guest using the school postcode CV6 5DP. […]

Competition for Library Display

The new shelving in the Library is looking great but it needs some creative images from YOU! Above each rack is a space for a header; we need 9 of them. It must be a circular image. Could your contribution be one of those chosen? Only beautiful, well finished items will be chosen. The Junior Librarians will […]

New Library Shelving

At last the new Library shelving has been fitted and filled. It has made a huge difference to the way the Library looks, feels and functions. All the comments have been positive and it has made for a more spacious area for reading and learning. Thanks again to the Foyle’s Foundation for the grant which […]

PSHE with Commando Joe

The PSHE lesson today focused on “Collaboration”.  We found it was easy to say but not so easy to do! It involved; trusting each other, being kind and communicating clearly with the rest of our team.     Our task was to copy a construction from wooden blocks. Unfortunately only one member of the team was allowed to […]

Make your vote count!

The planning for the new Library shelving is now complete and we are only a few weeks away from installation. The Junior Librarians are very excited! We now have many science and technology books in the new science/technology pod. This is now a “satellite” Library for specialised books and includes biographies, text books, computer programming, encyclopaedias […]

Brains Jailor Ruin

And so it begins; the new term has started, the Library has been changed around and the audio book corner established – in a corner! Initial comments are positive. The Library is in use and the Junior Librarians are gearing themselves up for the coming weeks! (They began their duties straight away without me having […]

British values day 2

TUESDAY Another day of fun and development. The children have been very well behaved and showing great interest in what we have been doing. Much of the morning was taken up with maths based around our British coinage. They were working on recognising, handling and computing problems to do with money.   Umar was able […]

British values week

MONDAY An exciting day of work and important visitors! First there was discussion about what British values were and the children were able to talk about things such as  “fairness”, “tolerance”, “equality” and “being kind to others”. In the morning we worked on symmetry and produced images of the Union Jack. We completed the other […]

Keen Junior Librarians

I just happened to mention that I was planning a series of training videos for those who were considering becoming a Junior Librarian! Before you could say “Hogwarts”, they were on it. Here is an undercover preview of their filming. Some of it may need adapting but their keenness is amazing. Well done all of […]

Junior Librarians visit W H Smith

Broad Heath Junior Librarians paid a visit to the West Orchard branch of W H Smith today. They met the manager and asked him some very good questions. How old was W H Smiths? How many books were there? Which was the most popular, fiction or non fiction?…      First they were shown the […]

Junior Librarians visit to W H Smith

The English Civil War

The English Civil War lasted for seven years and lots of people died. There were two sides in the war: The Parliamentarians (roundheads) who were strict and disciplined, and the Royalists (cavaliers) who were flamboyant and fun. Some of the accusations against him were: He taxed people too much! Charles I refused to share his […]
