Book Swap!

Does your child have a pile of books at home that they have already read?  Would they like the opportunity  to exchange them for more exciting reads?  Then Crownfield Junior School’s Book Swap Week could be for you!
As a school, we continually strive to develop and improve the reading skills of all of our pupils.  To encourage further reading, and help promote a lifetime love of books, we have decided to run a Book Swap event in school.

How it works:
On Monday 30th April, 2018 pupils may bring in a maximum of threegently used books to our school Library, for our Book Swap event.  For every book pupils bring in, they will receive a token, enabling them to exchange for the same amount of books to bring home.

Book Criteria:
Books must be appropriate for Years 3 – 6 children only.
Books must be in a ‘gently used’ condition i.e. no rips, tears, bent edges, food stains etc.
Books with colouring or writing in them will not be accepted.
Colouring books/activity books/sticker books will not be accepted.
Children will have the opportunity to come into the Library to select books to bring home, during the lunchtime on the following days:

Tuesday -         Year 6
Wednesday -   Year 5
Thursday -      Year 4
Friday  -          Year 3
Hopefully, this event will be a great way of ensuring pupils have access to new books to read and enjoy, as well as developing their love of reading.  If the event is successful, we hope to be able to repeat it on a regular basis.
Thank you for your support.
