Children's University

Children's University

Bexley Libraries and Bexley Local Studies are working with London South East Children’s University, an award programme that encourages children aged 5-14 to get involved in lots of exciting activities and experiences in Bexley.

Children will receive their own Passport to Learning and gain a stamp for every hour of activity completed at a validated Learning Destination, as they work towards their Children’s University Award, Certificate, Diploma, Degree and eventually Fellowship. At the end of the year, we will be inviting pupils to special university-style graduation ceremonies to celebrate their success!

Useful Book Links

With so many great websites for book lovers, we’ve selected a few which you might find useful. From choosing what to read next, book news and reviews and up to date information about literary awards and prizes

Really useful site for choosing books to recommend. Kept up to date and easy to search. Can search for individual titles or can search different categories such as age range/featured authors/themes etc. There is also a top ten of the month and different monthly features eg Prize-winners, debut books etc.

Another useful up to date site that’s great for finding books to suggest to children. It includes children’s reviews and extracts and the Families and Schools and Libraries pages give the opportunity to search by age.
