This morning a group of children from Years 2 to 6 were invited to The Haslemere Bookshop as recognition for their progress and enthusiasm for reading. The children learnt about the bookshop’s history and its importance locally for ethical shopping and supporting authors.
The pupils enjoyed exploring the children’s book section downstairs and then climbed upstairs for more browsing in the second-hand books room. The children then took it in turns to talk about their favourite book which they had brought in from home and explained why they like it so much. They then chose a selection of books for the school libraries and were awarded a book token, certificate and goody bag as a farewell gift. Thank you so much to Haslemere Book Shop for a wonderful morning!
