For a few years now, Fircroft has had a popular ‘birthday book’ tradition. On the occasion of a child’s birthday, parents can donate a book to the school which will go in the class book corner, with a label inside to say who kindly donated it.
If you would like to donate a birthday book, you can of course purchase a book from any bookseller but you might like to use a wishlist we have created on Amazon. The wishlist is split into EYFS, Key Stage 1, Years 3 & 4 and Years 5 & 6:
Alternatively, you can purchase books from independent bookseller The Alligator’s Mouth (based in Richmond). As with Amazon, we have created four wish lists for each phase of the school. Selecting and ordering is super easy and you can find all the information you need here:
Any books ordered will be delivered to our Assistant Headteacher, Ms. Thomas who, if you add a note as you place the order saying who it is from, will ensure a birthday bookplate goes inside the book.
Of course, it doesn't have to be your child’s birthday for you to donate books to us! Following the creation of our beautiful library, we are now working on improving the selection of books in our class book corners. If you would like to donate to a particular class or year group please put a note with your order so we can make sure it goes to the correct book corner.
