Fendalton Open-Air School Library Blog

Welcome to the Fendalton Open-Air school library blog. This is the place where reading for fun is our main focus. There are heaps of reviews, author and illustrator links, and book trailer links. There are games to play on the homework page and ideas for parents as well. Feel free to leave a comment on any of the posts.

Hilary and Meredith Badger just blew us all away with their talk about writing. All eyes were on the authors as they discussed how they came up with stories, characters and spy names. Everyone now wants to be a spy. I have had to purchase more books for the library because there are so many eager readers waiting for the next book to read. The authors were mobbed afterwards. A wonderful experience for the children but the authors were equally impressed by the FOS welcome from the Kapa Haka team.

Welcome back

Hello everyone.
It is great to be back in school. We have lots of exciting things happening in the library this term. For the seniors we are incredibly lucky to have two amazing authors visiting us next week. We have H.I. Larry - the author the Zac Power books. We also have Meredith Badger the author of many of the Go Girl books. Can't wait!

We are also participating in the Reading Crusade. That's where you get to read six books of your choice to try and win prizes but also to receive a certificate signed by the Crusaders Rugby Team. And that's just for starters.
