Primary School

Our Book Wish List

As part of our on going endeavours to encourage children of all ages to read and to enjoy reading, we are pulling together a display of "The Top 100 Books to Read before your leave Primary School" as published by TES.  This includes books for all ages and a lovely mix of genres.  Friends of Fernhurst School have very kindly had a special book case made for us to house all these books.  Please help us to fill its branches! 

We are looking for donations of the following books, brand new books are obviously welcomed but we would also love any good condition used editions too.  Please hand donations into the school office.  We thank you in advance for your support. (This list will be updated regularly.)
