Families at Tadcaster Primary Academy were welcomed into the school’s fabulous new library space which both children and staff have been working hard over the last few months to create.
On Friday afternoon, there was a huge turn out to see the official unveiling of the library which has been imaginatively decorated by the pupils with the support of Louise Brooke, Ebor’s Visual Arts Lead. Each team had chosen a favourite book to celebrate their love of reading, from ‘Room on the Broom’ to ‘Mr Big’ to ‘Holes’, the library walls have been transformed.
York based children’s author, Karen Langtree sent a personal video message to the school and she sent along her trusty knight ‘Sir Trumpsalot’ to cut the ribbon and deliver an inspirational speech about the importance of reading.
Miss Towler said, ‘I am so proud of how hard the whole school team have worked to make our library such an inviting and relaxing place to enjoy reading. Our families were so impressed with the transformation and the children are excited to start using this very special space.’
