Our Picks – April 2023
- After seven intensive years of dedicated planning and design, the Young V&A will open its doors in Bethnal Green on Saturday 1 July – in time for the summer holidays! Co-designed with children and young people, Young V&A is a free, national museum designed to showcase the power of creativity in children’s lives as they build new skills and develop the creative confidence needed to thrive in our fast-changing world.
- Our colleague and friend, librarian Janet Noble was at the BBC Book Club. She spoke about her 28 year career, and the books she is loving at the moment. They discuss Jacqueline Wilson and Sabine Adeyinka, whose book ‘Jummy At The River School’ is a new favourite. This year, Janet is also the Head Judge of the Yoto Carnegie Awards – which celebrate children’s authors and illustrators.
- Discover the importance of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene through WaterAid’s curriculum-linked lesson plans and engaging activities.
