Josie Heald from Rothwell Junior School regularly takes “small and varied groups of pupils to our local book shop where they have a budget of £15 each to buy new books for the school library. There are no restrictions on what the children can choose as long as it’s something they want to read. The books have a special sticker inside with the child’s name on and the children talk about their choices in assembly. We then display the books prominently in the library – within hours the books have all been borrowed!”
