Library Week - Day 3

Welcome to 'Dress Up Like a Book Character Day'!  What is your favourite costume??

Today's clip is just for fun - no learning involved.  If you worked at Harper Collins publishers, and were bored at lunchtime, what do you think you might do with all the books just lying around? 

How long do you think it took them to pick all those up?  :-)

Library Week - Day 2

Yesterday we had a clip to celebrate Library Week that was probably more interesting for the seniors....  today here is one for the juniors....although who doesn't love Cookie Monster?  Especially when he's in the Library!!

I hope you enjoyed that - and it will be great to see you tomorrow in costume :-)
