Return of the Travelling Books book fair
The Travelling Books shelves will be back in the school library from Thursday 4th to Tuesday 9th July 2019.
The classes will each have a timeslot to attend the fair during the day to browse and buy the many books on offer.
Commission from sales at the fair allows us to buy books for the library, so your support is greatly appreciated.
They are running their usual summer offer of buy 3 books, get the cheapest free, and discounted Gift Vouchers are available at bookfairs.scholastic.co.uk/parents. More information will come home nearer the date.

JuniorLibrarian.net allows you to browse our school library stock, write reviews, see news, and try out the ‘Who Next’ feature. There is also an App version of JuniorLibrarian called ‘iMLS’ available from the App Store and Android Market. To use either version you will need to get your log-on details from Mrs Gibbons - see letter below. You can email library @ courtlanejnr.portsmouth.sch.uk (no spaces) with any problems or questions.
Ebooks are here!!
As well as the many excellent ‘real’ books available to enjoy from school, children in years 5 and 6 are now offered free access to a library of eBooks as well. Your child can have their own username and password to access an online library of books, which can be previewed, browsed and read at http://portsmouth.wheelers.co
Each user can select one book at a time and has three weeks to read it, before it disappears from their account. The eBook library operates within a web browser, so they will be able to read them at school, or at home on any device which gives access to the internet.
If you would like your child’s username and password please complete the slip on the letter below and return it to school. Many thanks
