What is Book Week NI?

Book Week NI is a joint initiative arising from the partnership between BBC Northern Ireland and Libraries NI and the event is now going into its fifth year.


This year’s focus

This year’s theme is Stories and Storytelling; focusing on stories that matter to each one of us and encouraging everyone to participate and share stories from books that matter to them.

The aim is to inspire people of all ages to discover or rediscover the joy of reading by pledging to take 15 minutes to read during and preferably throughout the week. This is particularly prevalent with key messages such as encouraging parents and carers to read and share stories with children.

To encourage this there will be a different theme each day with suggestions of books, eBooks and eMagazines to read.  Also, themed displays will take place in libraries across Northern Ireland and the BBC’s programming will link to Book Week NI across its air waves. More information on the themes is available on our website here.

 

Here in Bridge we will aim to foster a love of reading and during this special week we pledge to do at least 15 minutes reading in class everyday.  We really hope that parents and children enjoy some time reading together at home too and would love you to share some of your photos with us.

 

Parent Surveys

 

Could all parents please take a few minutes to complete the following survey/s.  Your input will help inform us as we move forward this term with the use of Seesaw (P.1-4) and Google Classroom (P.5-7) for homework and if needed blended/remote learning.

Please note this is the same survey posted on the older school app.

P.1-P.4          https://forms.gle/CRWDA5fDS4HMXB4bA

 

P.5-P.7          https://forms.gle/Y9rxUQuZ89xYRkYj9

Staggered arrival times from Mon 12th Oct

There will be staggered times for arrival at school, using surnames, to ensure that family groups can arrive together.

A – E surnames should arrive at 8.45am

F – K surnames should arrive at 8.50am

L – Q surnames should arrive at 8.55am

R – Z surnames should arrive at 9.00am.

It is essential that parents/guardians adhere punctually to these times, to minimise congestion at cloakrooms.

All pupils must enter school through their cloakroom doors and will sanitise their hands on arrival. Pupils should not enter the building through the reception door.

 

Dismissal Times

Please do not arrive at the school before 1.30pm for the earlier pick up times.  This safeguards our P5 pupils who are playing in the front playground before this time.

The back gate will now open at 1.40pm each day to allow access from Hillhead for collection of pupils from P1 upwards.
