World Book Day doodles

S1 worked with their Art and Design teachers and Librarian, Mrs Macfadyen, to create doodles suitable for World Book Day book tokens.

As part of the project, we introduced pupils to the illustrator and Children’s Laureate, Chris Riddell, through an Authors Live video, in which he demonstrates his talent and discusses the value of doodling. Mrs Macfadyen also read to each class (including all the voices) while they worked on their own doodles, and the teaching staff shared their own sketchbooks to prove that doodling is going on all the time, and share its value as a way of relaxation.

Bookmarks for World Book Day

All S1 Art classes participated in the World Book Day Design a Bookmark Competition.

Each class came to the Library to analyse existing designs before using the resources as inspiration for their own ideas, mixing animals and astronomy, patterns and poetry. Pupils now face the difficult task of deciding which of their many designs should be entered in the contest.
