Bookworms

Who We Are

We are a group of pupils who care deeply for our library and are enthusiastic about book reading. We meet every week to discuss everything our plans about how to make or library as good as it can be. We discuss how the library works as well as thinking of great ideas of how to get more people reading.

What We Do

We work with the school’s librarian to learn about how to use the Junior Librarian System. This is the computerised system we use to know what books we have in stock and using each pupil’s barcode we can see what books they have on loan and trends across a class or the whole school.

I would like to be a bookworm for a number of reasons but the most important is to help children read any genre and author of their choice. Secondly, I wish to challenge myself with a whole new set of genres and a range of authors from many different backgrounds. In the school library I would like to help classmates be anyone or anything they want to be in the book. I also like reading at home particularly The Hobbit which is fantasy. Reading is important to me because I love reading in general. I would also like to help people read all of the books in the library.

I have wanted to be a bookworm for many reasons. I want to improve my reading at home and at school. In the classroom, I have read lots of high level reading books so I want to help classmates experience the adventures they could have through books. My classmates might have trouble thinking of books so I would be able to help them.

I want to be a bookworm because I love to read and I want to help children from many different cultures to read as well. Some people don’t like to read so I want them to like reading. Finally I want to help to choose new and exciting books. My favourite genre is fantasy because there is always something bad going on in the story.

I want to be a bookworm because I really like reading books. I like reading books such as funny and Dahl genres. My challenge is that, by the end of year six, I want to have finished all of the 250 books on the reading express. I always read at home and find good books that are suitable for me to read. Being a bookworm is good because I can help my class to find good books, and reading is good for your brain.

I really want to be a bookworm this year because reading books is one of the things I love. Throughout the year I want to challenge myself in every way. To read a book from every genre, to help my peers to choose books, and to help the library in any way possible. Finally I wish to keep the library tidy and choose exciting new books I know children will love and want to share with other people from lots of different authors and backgrounds. That is why I really wanted to be a helpful bookworm.

I want to be a bookworm because I think reading books is better than watching TV. But I really love being a bookworm so I can say or spell long words just like a thesaurus. Lastly, I love being a bookworm so I can read more than seven times a week and every Friday. My favourite genre of book is funny, such as Horrid Henry.

I want to be a bookworm because I want to challenge myself and others to read every day, and to read most of the genres. I’d love to help my classmates choose new books and recommend books to them. I also want to help my friends change books on the librarian’s computer. My favourite genre is funny because it makes me laugh.

454-0C351771C7

I really want to be a bookworm this year because firstly I want to encourage myself and everyone in the school to try to read a book from every genre like funny or maybe a fantasy. I particularly love funny and adventure books. Finally, everyone has different opinions. Some people like horror and others like Dahl. You can’t judge people for what books they like.

371-CBD6A23E46

I wanted to be a bookworm for lots of reasons. Firstly, I like reading books at home like scary and horror. Secondly, I will recommend fun books to my classmates and help them if they are stuck on a word. Finally I will recommend really good authors to them.

I love books I’m reading because I feel in a whole new world. In a library I just like to sit down with a book and read. My favourite book is the Harry Potter series. I also want to help my class with their reading.

I really wanted to become a bookworm because I want to help the library. My whole family loves to read so I thought I could become a bookworm to make my family happy and I could help encourage my little brother to read. I want to help people who don’t read and try to make them read more and bring their reading records in, and to explore new genres.

I really wanted to be a bookworm and now I am one. There are lots of reasons why I wanted to be one! Firstly, I really want to help in the library, and keep it tidy. I wanted to give recommendations on some very good books, for example, Shadow by Michael Morpurgo. Shadow is a great story about an Afghanistan boy who needs a friend, and he finds Shadow, a female dog, and they form an unbreakable friendship, but the ending is really sad, so I won’t give it away. Thank you for letting me be a bookworm!!

I want to be a bookworm because I’d like to encourage my classmates to read more. The thing is many children don’t read a lot and I told them to read more to get more signatures for my class. Not every class has a bookworm reminding them to read by putting a little note as a reminder. Finally, I would want to make my class be known as the class with the most signatures, so we are looked up to, and inspire new children throughout my last year here.

I wanted to be a bookworm because… I want to help my classmates to find which books to read, and how to find the right book for them. It will be very helpful for Ms Satilmus, therefore she can come in a bit later and not be behind with anything in the library as we will be helping her, so she doesn’t have to stress. I also want to give some opinions on what to read, and help form the library, this is why I wanted to be a bookworm.

I really wanted to be a bookworm for a number of reasons. Most of my free time at home I read. Reading is my hobby, as I enjoy it, and I want to show other people how fun it is. I would like to help the library and choose a variety of books for different genres and written by different authors. I have always enjoyed reading books for as long as I can remember, going into different worlds and being the characters is always fun. My favourite genre is Detective and Mystery. I love the way the detectives have to find the clues, it brings a lot of suspense. I also wish to help my classmates choose a book to read and help the teacher anyway I can. That is why I wanted to be a bookworm.
