Every school term we open or launch new resources at Dogsthorpe Infant School and this term was no exception. On the first day of the Autumn 2019 term we opened our new Book Nook library. A totally new room with new furniture & resources to encourage our children's reading. 'The Book Nook' has been designed for all age groups and can be used for storytelling or simply 'quiet reading'.
