Our School Library
'the library is enchanting' (OFSTED June 2016)
Here at Sacred Heart School we not only strive to develop a love of reading with our children but we also try to instil a passion for everything literary. The library plays a significant role in working to achieve this. The library is the heart of our school.
The school library offers children a huge variety of both fiction and non-fiction books to choose from, as wells as comics, newspapers and graphic novels. All of which are regularly updated with new stock.
We use MLS, Junior Librarian computerised system. A selection of children from year 6 are trained as junior librarians and help to run the library every lunchtime, Monday to Thursday. Every pupil can borrow books from the library – Infants 1 book per week, Juniors 2 books (fiction and non-fiction) and return them after a week.

A selection of our Librarian, Mrs Needham, dressed for Book Character Day!
And she became Dumbledore for Harry Potter Book Night!
Mrs Needham is reading...
An evil Ice Queen rules over Erkenwald, a snowy kingdom where whales glide between icebergs, wolves hunts on the tundra and polar bears roam the glaciers.
The children have been left all alone as their parents, lured by a haunted organ, have become the Ice Queen’s prisoners at Winterfang Palace.
Hope is lost, despair seems inevitable until fate brings our young inventor Flint to cross paths with Eska, a girl who is trapped in a music box by a wicked curse. Together they must travel to the ends of their kingdom in the hope of discovering the truth behind the prophecy that tells of the Sky Song which is their only possibility of defeating the Queen.
A fast paced adventure which reminded me in parts of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The main theme of the book was hope and courage; it was full of magic with some really lovable characters.
