Christmas has arrived in the Discovery Centre
We always start Christmas a little early in the Discovery Centre so we can get into the spirit of things and showcase our great selection of “Christmas books”. We have been reading “Christmas” books over the past couple of weeks, and the students have really enjoyed these. I hope you too have been enjoying the Christmas stories the students have been taking home. We are also doing Christmas activities, from making (and eating) Snowmen Santas, Santa candy canes, Christmas baubles & reindeer balls. All good fun.
Book of the week
This week our Christmas themed book featured is “The day Rudolph’s nose turned blue” by Alison Reynolds. It was the day before Christmas, but all the reindeers were unwell, so Santa had to find some other animals to help out. Were the presents delivered in time???
Last week our featured book was “Game on! 2020”. This is the ultimate guide to all your favourite games and the hot new ones coming in 2020.
End of year procedure
As mentioned in the last newsletter the last week of lessons is Wk. 9 beginning Monday 2nd December. Borrowing is now finished for the year, and all titles must be returned to the DC for stocktaking/checking over the Christmas break.
I encourage students to visit their local public library to borrow books to read over the holidays, or if you are lucky maybe Santa might bring you some new books too.
