Well done, to all our children for their reading efforts – sweetie jars in the library are filling up (just ask the children to explain) let’s all keep up the good work!
The libraries at Downsend School are warm, friendly and welcoming places for children to enjoy. The wealth of books aims to provide them with a wide choice of material to borrow or read quietly during the course of the day.
Children may borrow books to take home and are all provided with their own library card. Lively and informative displays with the latest news from the world of books are used to inspire and encourage wider reading. The librarian is always on hand to answer any questions or help with locating books.
A library lunchtime club for the Junior School children encourages them to come along and read, enjoy story cassettes or complete reading related challenges whilst in the Senior School the 'Books & Buns' reading group meet to discuss their latest choices.
During the annual Book Week, held each January, the whole school comes alive with reading, visiting authors, poets and dramatists.
The libraries and reading are central to the life of the school so please visit these pages regularly and follow the Library Blog for all the latest news.
