Article 15: All children have the right to join groups and organisations.

Article 17: All children have the right to access information.

On Monday 18th March, Year 6 went on a visit to Gateshead Central Library. The children took part in a book treasure hunt in two teams – a fiction team and a non-fiction team. The children had to locate books in the library which matched the criteria on cards. The teams then swapped over, to find books in the opposite section of the library. The final part of the task was to return the other team’s books to the correct locations, using the library’s systems. This helps the children to identify how libraries are used to efficiently locate the books they need or want when using the library with increasing independence.
