St Philip's Catholic Primary and Nursery School

"In the light of Christ, where everyone is valued and learning is celebrated"

 Reading is at the heart of our school. We are very proud of our library, it is a sacred place and we love to visit it!  

Our librarians in Year Five, help Mrs Morland to look after it. Not only do they scan library books and restock shelves, they help their friends to select a book. 
If you would like to apply to become a librarian, please see Mrs Morland for an application form.

Meet our Librarians

Reading Buddies 

One of the roles of a librarian is to be a reading buddy. Every Friday morning before assembly, each librarian listens to a child in Year One read a few pages of their reading book, helping them to read fluently and with expression as well as talking about what they have read. Then the librarian will read a library book to them.

Pay as You Feel Sale

When the librarians found out that not all of the children in our school have books of their own at home, they decided to hold a book sale. All the teachers donated books that they no longer needed and on World Book Day, they organised a pay as you feel sale.

It was such a success that it lasted two days and everyone was very generous. In total we raised £86 and we are going to put this money towards new books for the library.
