Our latest half-price book fair has been a record-breaking success with cash sales of over £500! Grabbing bargain books priced as low as £1.50, students also took advantage of half-priced stationery, posters, diaries, note-books and photo frames. New books were on offer from Ransom Riggs, Anthony Horowitz, Andy McNab, Malorie Blackman, Michael Morpurgo as well as new celebrity authors such as Alesha Dixon and Roman Kemp!
Also popular were the latest 2020 gaming and football books, Disney Twisted Tales, and books associated with TV and Netflix shows such as Riverdale and the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Classic literature was also popular from authors such as Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle and Arthur C Clarke and Robert Louis Stevenson.
As usual, each book fair comes with the opportunity for students to win a free book by entering a competition. All year 7 and 8 students were given a library lesson to complete this and thoroughly enjoyed re-writing the song The Twelve Days Of Christmas. There were some very worthy entries with popular themes including fast food, politics, gaming and the latest gadgets! Congratulations to the following pupils who won a free book: Dylan 7C1, Jamie 7C1, Harrison 7G1 and Eve 7D1. Additionally: Tara 8P2, Mohammed 8P2, Yasin 8G1, Hishaam 8P2, Isa 8D1, Uzair 8D1, Tony 8C2, Roman 8P1, Mariam 8P2 and Evie 8D1.
Our next fair will run in the beginning of March; corresponding with World Book Day week, with more new books on offer! Don’t miss it!
