This half-term some of our children from Y3 & Y4 have been enjoying taking part in a Chatterbooks after school club led by the lovely librarians from the Gateshead Library Service. The children have been discovering a wide variety of books from a range of genres, as well as taking part in an assortment of creative craft activities including making edible teeth (based on The Demon Dentist by David Walliams) and their very own superhero puppets. Olivia from Y6, who is our Head Librarian in school helped out each week and now runs Chatterbooks sessions on a lunchtime. The children all really enjoyed the sessions and Chrissie, the librarian from Gateshead, who came to our Monday assembly to present special certificates and prizes to those children who had completed the sessions, said that she had very much enjoyed working with the children of St Joseph’s Juniors and that she would love to come back! Mrs McDermott said that there would definitely be more clubs including a Buzz Books Club for the older children.
