The second day of Roald Dahl week has featured a reading in assembly plus the launch of another library competition. Teacher Ms Coombe spoke about her favourite childhood book, ‘The Magic Finger’ which then became a favourite story of her own children.
She read an extract from the first chapter. The book is about a heroine who can make dramatic changes by using her finger to direct a beam of tranformative magic, which she uses first on a teacher and then on her hunting-mad neighbours. Ms Coombe then quoted from the Qur'an, Torah and the diary of Ann Frank to illustrate how people can use their hands for both good or bad purposes.
Librarian Mrs Adams has launched the latest competition. To be in with a chance of winning then simply borrow a book from the library. 150 of the school's books have been allocated golden ticket status on the lending system, but you will only find out if yours is a winner when you check it out. There are 150 sweet Wonka treats for the lucky borrowers!
