Children in Knowsley have celebrated completing a range of exciting Library Service initiatives at a special event in Huyton Library.
Youngsters received medals and certificates for completing the Roald Dahl inspired summer reading challenge – ‘The Big Friendly Read’.
Halewood Church of England School collected the school Summer Reading Challenge award for the most pupils completing the challenge. Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School were the runners-up.
Children were able to get involved in lots of exciting activities in the libraries over the school summer holidays. The winners and runners-up of the writing and drawing competitions were also presented with medals and certificates at the celebration event, as were the winners of the summer quiz.
Those attending the event were treated to a 10 minute dramatic re-telling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet by the talented Eden Ballantyne from Stories Alive.
Knowsley’s Libraries offer lots of term-time and school holiday activities for children including coding, story and rhyme sessions for under fives. If you’d like to find out more contact your local branch or visit the council’s website for more information.
