Round 4, January 2010

Page history last edited by Laura Woods 13 years, 11 months ago

Period 1: Day starts with a "free" period so it gives me a chance to catch up with my emails and post. New Johhny Depp calendar has arrived which means I can now take down last year's! One of the emials is about the BBC School's Report so I need to check that we've got all the paperwork signed for that plus the website link has been set up. The Media teacher who I am collaborating with is on maternity leave and won't be back til nearer the actual day so I must make sure everything is okay whilst she's away. Also have a lot of emails about the Year 7 Berkshire Book Week quiz ... the ELS aren't organising it this year so I've contacted the other Wokingham schools and suggested that we do something ourselves. Will host it here but need to bring the others on board to help with questions, certificates, refreshments, etc. First task will be to contact them all and sort out a mutually agreed date. Have also changed my book dis0k display. Last week's was on International Aid and charities as we were having cake sales and a non-uniform day for the Haiti Appeal. Was doing some photography at the weekend and pulled together a collection of books all the same colour and noticed how striking they were .... so have created a "Read Red" display. All fiction books but all different authors and genres. Looks rather good and very eye-catching.

Round 4 of the Library Day in the Life Project beginning January 25th 2010.
