Bookworms from Kingfisher Primary, Wheatley, will spend their summer leaving more than 400 of their favourite reads in imaginitive places as part of a nationwide scheme.

Both staff and pupils are taking part in the ‘Book Crossing’, where books are left in places like bus stops and shopping centres for somebody to find.

The other person then reads the book and leaves it in a new place for someone else.

Head Nathan Atkinson said: “On the Book Crossing website you can see how far the books have gone, spreading the enjoyment of reading.”

The pupils have been challenged to take a photo of themselves leaving the book in their chosen place, and then posting it on their own personal blog.
