Pencaitland Book Festival Week has begun!

The first day of our Book Festival was very successful. Five parents came in to read to pupils or to listen to them read, and they left some lovely comments about the event and how well our pupils can discuss the books they are reading. Thank you to all involved.
Today we start the Swapshop Bookshop and tonight we have the Bedtime Story for Nursery and Primary 1 children.
In school today we have lots of parents again, and Karen Robertson, an East Lothian Education Quality Improvement Officer. Councillor Ruth Currie is joining us to work with Primary 6 and 7, and Scottish author, Garry Paulin, will be presenting his book, Voytek the Bear, to Primary 5, 6 and 7 this afternoon.

  1. Many thanks to you all for inviting me to read and talk about books with the nursery and P4s last Friday. I had a fantastic time and was very impressed with everybody’s enthusiasm.
    I have posted a couple of photos on my own blog.
    Well done. I’d love to return if you have another Festival.

  2. It was great to hear the children reading, and to have a chance to find out what they liked about books they have read. I hope it encourages more parent involvement!
