We know there will be lots of great ideas for sharing with parents and gifting the books, please don’t forget that our Library Services are always keen to support so contact Margaret Hill, Early Years Librarian if you have any queries.

On Thursday 27th October, SBT have a live author event from 11 – 11.40am with Tracey Corderoy and Steven Lenton, author and illustrator of Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam. This is one of the books in the Primary 2 gift bag which is great fun and full of rhyme to give practise in this vitally important area. If you would like to take part, here is the link:
Below is a further link to a new folder of resources for P2/P3 teachers with activities based around the books in the relevant gift bag.
