Every week, all the classes visit the library, which is often referred to as the heart of the school, according to library teacher Elisabeth Jensen Lombnæs.
During the annual reading week at Gamlebyen School, all students read selected books that they discuss together in the classrooms.
This year the fourth graders read the book ‘Jørgen + Anne er Sant’, a Norwegian children’s book about falling in love by Vigdis Hjort. The book was published in 1984.
Together with the fourth graders, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, Mayor of Oslo Marianne Borgen and librarian Elisabeth Jensen Lombnæs discussed the book and reflected on the topics it addresses.
