Activities, Competitions & Quizzes
Weekly Activities in the Library:
Reading Zone: All students are welcome to come to the library to relax and chill at the end of the week with their books, magazines and newspaper. This is a great opportunity for students to share books with friends and enjoy reading with other students.
Friendship Day (September)
National Poetry Day (October)
The library celebrates the festive season by hosting games and activities for students to take part in throughout Advent. All money raised is donated to Barnardos our charity of choice. Students help raise money by joining in these events over both break times in December.
World Book Day (March)
A time to celebrate books! We start the day with a reading breakfast with our year 7 and year 9 Reading Buddies. This is followed up with students taking part in a number of competitions at break and lunchtime. The staff of Hungerhill all show their support by dressing up as book characters and always get involved in the staff competition.
World Book Night (April)
The library celebrate World Book Night with some of our year 9 students and year 3 students from our five feeder schools. Our events for World Book Night always take place after school and we like to finish with bedtime stories and treats. The students are encouraged to wear pygmies for our PJ parties or dress as a character from Alice In Wonderland when we hosted “The Mad Hatters Tea Party”. Last year we had hosted hot chocolate and cookies evening which resulted in a “Murder in the Library. The year 3 students joined out year 9 detectives and solved the library murder.
The Library staff, along with a number of Year 9 students, work alongside our feeder schools' Year 3 pupils, doing a number of activities, including book reading, a Library visit, and a day visit to Hungerhill School. During this day visit, the pupils will be involved in a workshop and will complete their book reviews, which will be posted onto the web. The season is finished with a grand final event at Hungerhill (please refer to the calendar for the current date).
