Library

At Four Lanes Junior School we recognise the importance of reading (especially reading for pleasure). With this in mind, we are proud to have a well-stocked and maintained library – with over 4,000 books for our children to use and enjoy. In addition to this, we are able to borrow 900 books from Hampshire School Library Service which helps to keep our library as up to date as possible.

To assist in the running of the library, we currently have 9 pupil librarians, one from each class (Year 4 upwards) as well as 2 additional Year 6 helpers. The librarians are trained to assist, not only the librarian, but also their peers in the choosing and borrowing of books.

Within the library our display boards are updated to inspire the children to read. We have an ‘Author PenPal’ display. This board includes information about the author as well as some of the books they have written and also give ideas from the author of suggested reading. We also have a ‘Library News’ board to give information about what happens in the library.

Over lunchtime, we currently run 2 library clubs: Tuesday for lower school and Thursday for upper school. These sessions can be attended by anyone who would like 30 minutes of book related fun.

Library News

Due to the COVID restrictions, we are disappointed that once again it will not be possible to hold our annual book fair this year. So instead we have set up a Scholastic Book Club – this enables you to purchase some great titles for your children, while earning rewards for our school. Please use the special book club link below to browse all the wonderful titles on offer:
Our new Scholastic Book Club is up and running! Go to https://schools.scholastic.co.uk/four-lanes-rg24/digital-book-club to browse the latest books and order online. For every £1 you spend on this month’s Book Club, our school will earn 20p in Scholastic Rewards.
Please place your order online by June 28th, 2021.

Don’t forget all the wonderful eBooks & audiobooks available to Four Lanes Junior School via https://fourlanesjun-hantssls.wheelers.co/.

If you have not yet used this service, please contact a.kent@fourlanes-jun.hants.sch.uk for your log in details.

I hope you enjoy the little bag of goodies I put together for you.

Thank you to everyone who entered the bookmark competition, the volume and standard of entries was amazing and yet again, it was extremely difficult to chose the winners.

PUPIL LIBRARIANS

I am delighted to advise that we can now look to recruit our pupil librarians. We will be choosing one child per class (years 3-5) to help in the library one day per week. This will start before the summer holidays and then continue into next year. The application forms were available from 8th June and I will finish collecting them in two weeks.

Good Luck everyone!

Book Club

We hope to restart our Book Clubs in September – so watch this space…
