Bookweek Scotland 19th – 23rd Nov 2018

To celebrate Book Week Scotland P4 – 7 classes will be organising a class Book Swap. Children are invited to bring in books that they no longer want. They can then have the opportunity to swap these with other pupils in their class. In order for this to be successful it would be useful if every child could bring at least one book.

Please could all books which children are happy to swap be brought to school by Friday 16th November.  Individual class teachers will then organise their book swap events during the course of Book week.
