Schools will now have received their Bookbug P1 bags which contain three amazing books from the Bookbug Picture Book Prize shortlist. Read these three amazing books with your class and vote for your favourite book on the website.
three books are:
Unicorn Expert by Morag Hood
The Prince and the
Witch and the Thief and the Bears
by Alastair Chisholm
The Station Mouse by Meg McLaren
Schools can sign up to vote for their favourite book on the shortlist – this is a fantastic way to bring the books to life, and involve the children in a national programme to select their favourite book!
There are also a range of resources available to help teachers to make the most of the prize. Additionally, even though the books are gifted to P1 pupils, the prize is not restricted to this age group – in fact, the bags are a great way to get older pupils involved in paired reading.
As part of the Bookbug (P1) and Read, Write, Count (P2 & P3) campaigns, children across Scotland will receive a book bag. The packs will arrive in schools between October and November. Children in Gaelic Medium will receive an English and a Gaelic pack.
Please click the link below for more information, suggested learning resources and contact details if you have too few, or have received a surplus of packs.
As part of Book Week Scotland (18th – 24th November 2019), the Scottish Book Trust will gift every P2 and P3 child in Scotland two free books.
The Read, Write, Count team have developed online CLPL webinars on bag gifting for Primary 2 and Primary 3 teachers to attend. These sessions will give an overview of the Read, Write, count programme. This will include what to expect in this year’s bags, related activities and resources and ideas for planning a gifting event.
