Topic Box Loans

Topic boxes

LSE holds a range of resources which are designed to help teachers and school librarians make reading and learning fun for children.

We offer the following to support your teaching and your pupils' learning:

Topic boxes are loaned on a pay-as-you-go basis.  The boxes are loaned for an old school term and can be delivered and collected by us at the beginning and end of each term, or you can choose to collect directly from us here at LSE or from a Gloucestershire public library.  There are 2 options to choose from:
