OUR PROJECT

About us

We are a small village primary school on the outskirts of Yeovil, Somerset. We have just under 80 students and a very small budget to go with it! 

What do we want?

Last year, we put back our school library recycling furniture and equipment to make it a nice learning area and somewhere the children could come and relax, read and listen to stories and do their homework. It also doubles up as a small teaching area for the whole school.

We have a good selection of KS2 books but are limited for KS1 so we need to increase the selection of books available. One way of doing this is by adding eReaders (Amazon Fire HD). We would also like to make it a more comfortable area by getting some bright comfy bean bags. Our Junior Librarians do a fantastic job and they would like some shelf dividers to make it easier when returning the books, at the moment they are all squeezed in!
