Countdown to Christmas Hanging Advent Calendar Week 2 – 10 – 14 December 2018

The Novelties Book Club pupils created a novel advent calendar in the library. In this Countdown to Christmas, a book from the hanging display above the library desk is being opened by a pupil each day and shared.

Week Two began with Day 10 of our Hanging Advent Calendar and was opened by Miss Weir in the Maths department. It was shared with S6 paired readers Gabe and Tarmo. Their S1 readers were partying. An impromptu reading session, of Santa Paws, with Miss Weir instead #allgoodfun #Christmasmood 💜📚🎁

Day 11 and Kai & Alejandro were very excited to see what was in today’s Hanging Advent Calendar. It is The Battle for Christmas by Jeremy Strong which Alejandro and his paired reader, Cara, sat down to enjoy #Christmasmood #happyreaders.

Day 12 of our Hanging Advent Calendar was unwrapped by our head teacher Mr Barnett, who enjoyed talking to the S3 Scottish Teenage Book Prize pupils & finding out more about the project. A vibrantly illustrated book by Anne Fine. All about a welcome home party for a gnome…Very Different!

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie was the exciting discovery on Day 13 of our Hanging Advent Calendar. Robyn shared with Jennifer a sinister warning on Hercule Poirot’s pillow to avoid the plum pudding… then the discovery of a corpse in a chest #classic 📚

Day 14 of our Hanging Advent Calendar. Mr Ramzy, Principal Teacher of EAL, together with Hannah, opened Just William by Richmal Crompton .

He shared the tousle-headed, snub-nosed, lovable imp of mischief’s festive adventures with Ellie & Craig. There is only one William! 🎁🎄📚
