Fun at Halifax Library

On Monday 23rd May some KS2 boys had the opportunity to meet the successful local author Tom Palmer to ask him about his life as a writer. This followed on from reading his book 'Off Side' as a group last term. The boys wrote reviews on the novel and Joshuah Y4 won a book token for his review. The day at Halifax Central Library also involved a reading quiz and then a team building task, where the boys had to work with pupils from other schools in Calderdale. We were the only Todmorden school to take part in the project which was organised by the excellent Library Discovery Team. Whenever such opportunities arise, we at Shade try to make the most of them as reading is THE most important life skill !
