Article 17: All children have the right to access information.
On Wednesday 18th October, Year 6 went on a visit to Gateshead Central Library. The children took part in a scavenger hunt to try to find books within the library, such as books with an animal protagonist or books based on historical fiction. This required the children to carefully select which areas of the library to look in to access different types and genres of books.
The children were then given the opportunity to choose a book to borrow from the library to take home and enjoy. The librarians also discussed with the children about the importance of reading and shared all of the facilities and activities available at our local library, which are all free for children and their families to access.
