The Library is Open

How much laughter can four walls take? A lot apparently!

How lovely to see a room full of happy children gasping at our new beautiful library and laughing until their bellies ached!

The wood panelled walls were first awoken to the beautiful voices of the Piccolo choir whose rendition of the song ‘A Cover is not a Book’ from the new Mary Poppins film was truly amazing. Our visiting author, James Campbell, then cut the red ribbon and declared our new library ‘Open’!

For the entire morning, every year group had an hour long session of pure comedy, with James Campbell not only telling us a bit about how he became a writer, tips for writing stories and reading us snippets from his books, but he answered all the weird and wonderful questions asked of him by our children – brave man!

He entertained us with stories, a very popular story being the ‘Umbrella tree’, and with many anecdotes from man toys to old people’s stairlifts – he had something for everyone and somehow managed to make every single year group roar with laughter from Nursery right through to Year 8. What a wonderful first morning in the library!

Next week now sees our week long Book fair in conjunction with Aldeburgh Bookshop. If we have not had your reply slip yet, please confirm to Louise Coates by email: schooloffice@obh.co.uk as to whether you would like your child to purchase any books and to what value can be added to your school bill. Aldeburgh Bookshop have selected the best fiction out there for all age groups at Old Buckenham Hall. Each child will also be given a tour of the library and introduced to our catalogue system, Junior Librarian.
