As you may recall from last session, we operate a weekly Book Club that is run by a volunteer and former parent.
The Book Club involves children in the school and ELC bringing in 50p each week for three weeks. Once £1.50 has been saved*, children can choose from a wide range of books. Money is collected every Friday and we are delighted that it started again last week.
The Book Club allows children to purchase high quality books at a low price which encourages a love of reading; supports the cost of the school day; and promotes a habit of saving (for this reason we do ask that children do not bring any more than 50p in any one week so that they are saving towards their chosen book). If younger children who are taking part, could bring their money in a bag/envelope, purse or wallet, this would help. ELC learners can leave money in their tray and let the 'door' member of staff know.
We will update the app to let you if the Book Club is not running on a Friday for any reason, so please assume if you do not hear from us, that it will be on.
Please remember this is not a compulsory initiative so there is no pressure to take part.*Any money saved towards the £1.50 last session will be carried over.
