There is a special website just for children to use which is full of games and ideas:-
"You can join Belle, Louis and Raj – the Quest Seekers – in their search for the golden book at your local library. And here on the website, we also have a quiz, author blogs, jokes, messages, and some top tips from the Tree Folk (they're friendly library staff) to help you make the most of your quest"
Parents might find the resources here are more useful in helping them understand what the scheme is all about. Of course the best thing to do is ask the Library staff who will be happy to help you. There are special leaflets for parents available.
Even if you do not have a PC at home or big brother or sis will not let anyone else use it, then the Library can help you there too and have several available for use!
This is the 11th year that the challenge has been running and it has been said that children who take part in the scheme:-
■ Are more enthusiastic about reading
■ Maintain their reading level during the summer holidays
■ Return to school keen and ready to learn
■ Boost their self-esteem and confidence by completing the challenge
If your child is not yet at school then they can still take part via the Book start Book crawl and older brothers and sisters who have left Primary can take part via the 'Beyond Quest Seekers' booklet. Some schools use this as one of the many transition projects between Primary and High Schools.
The pictures taken here were done by members of Class4/dosbarth Laura Ashley in Camera club. They used the old camera set up the shots tried different angles, different props & Lighting. They also had Millie our mascot in most shots can you spot her? We think that they took some great shots and illustrated the scheme very well.
