Whilst many pupils and students cannot visit our library in person, we are inviting parents and carers in our Primary Phase to join us, virtually, through two special activities celebrating National Storytelling Week.

Firstly, we will be holding a virtual read-along for pupils in Year 4 and 5, where Senior School Librarian Mrs Dewhurst will lead a shared read on Google Meet. Dates and times will be confirmed shortly, with the following titles selected thanks to the Reading Agency:

  • Year 4 and 5 – Incredible Record Smashers

Secondly, Mrs Dewhurst is running a ‘Bumper Book Giveaway’ to celebrate National Storytelling week, from the 1st-5th February. Parents and carers of pupils in the Primary Phase need to like the Library Facebook page, here, and send an email to vdewhurst@QEGSBlackburn.com with why they should win the bundle. Please include your child’s name and class on the email to Mrs Dewhurst, who will judge the competition.

Everyone who enters the competition from QEGS Primary Phase will receive a Scholastic book bag and a bookmark, with the lucky winner of the book bundle announced on Monday 8th February 2021.

*T&CS: Competition will open at 8am on Monday 1st February until 4pm on Friday 5th February. Entries must be from, or on behalf of, QEGS Primary Phase pupils during this time and names must be provided to be counted as an entry. An entry only counts when the parent/carer has ‘liked’ the QEGS Library Facebook page and emailed the vdewhurst@QEGSBlackburn.com. The selected winner will be announced via Facebook on Monday 8th February 2021 and no purchase is necessary. No cash alternative and the prize is non-transferable. This competition is not endorsed by Scholastic and is solely run by QEGS Senior Phase Library.
