Sheffield Bag-A-Book Day 2009

Last week, during half-term Reading Matters had a stall at the Sheffield Fostering Service Bag-A-Book Day, at Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough Stadium. It was a great day, lots of fun. It was the first time Reading Matters had been involved so we were not sure how to best particpate. Because of the setting I decided on a set of football word games, but these were put to shame by all the othe activites on offer; paint-a-pot, face-paining, mask-making, urban poetry, street dance, stadium tours, story-telling and lots lots more. So next year we need to think of something really exciting, suggestions very welcome!

Just an idea for next time...

What about having either a story time slot. AKA Jackanory.

Go along dressed up as a character from a book?


Do a word wall. Ask people who look at the exhibit to add a word.
You can choose a theme?!
Will you have a display unit to add them to?

All the best and send me info nearer time?


All ages welcome to contribute.

Perhaps you can display dictionaries, thesauri, word books, subject encyclopedias to give people ideas.

Prepare A5 size pieces of paper for people to use as the "bricks"
