Thought I’d have a focus on non-fiction books but the competition has to be accessible to both infant and junior children. So I’ve decided on a ‘Where in the World’ competition.
The children collect a world map from the library which has the continents labelled. They have to find an interesting or unusual fact about each continent.
My display shelves in the library, both fiction and non-fiction, support the competition theme. Non-fiction books displayed include atlases, travel books, books about countries, animals from different countries etc. Whilst the fiction theme is stories from around the world.
The children have already been to the library asking what the next competition is, hopefully they won’t be disappointed!
