What’s hot – TV and Music

When thinking about popular trends as we are growing up, it is so easy to forget! Whether it’s Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, or all the latest Disney there’s no doubt that at some point the common room has been discussing the latest cliffhanger or shock ending.

We have created some page designs for you to use to collect the ‘Top Hits’ and Netflix’s trending for you to use.   We’ve come up with a fun few of ways to create themed pages within your book.  If you like any of them just let us know when you next speak to a member of the team we can just add the page to your book for you to edit or keep it as it is.

Here at AllYearbook’s not a day goes by without “Have you seen…..”.  We love films, TV and music! We are all watching different things but generally the whole office gets involved with what’s on and someone is always recommending films and series to watch!

All of these layouts are available for you to use for completely free of charge in your Leavers Yearbooks. To use them all you need to do is once you have created a yearbook here – http://www.allyearbooks.co.uk/start and speak to one of the team in chat and ask us to add the page to your yearbook! It’s so simple and they look really good!

Roald Dahl Day – Our Favourite Quotes!

We love Roald Dahl and so do our customers we have found some interesting facts about the genius author, who gave us amazing stories including Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.

We’ve also added in some of our favourite quotes from his books. Book quotes are a great way to fill up empty space in your yearbook, and quotes from Dahl are beloved by all, young and old.

So why not take inspiration from this worldwide celebration and include some of your favourite quotes in your profile?

Charlie

1. Roald Dahl co-wrote the script for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and came up with the creepy character of The Child Catcher.

BFG

2. Dahl was a great lover of chocolate. So much so that there was a whole chapter dedicated to it in The Roald Dahl Cookbook.

Twits

3. In 2015, The Twits was the most-read book in UK primary schools, after first being published in 1980.

Mr Fox

4. In The BFG, Dahl created a long list of words which eventually became the title character’s own language – Gobblefunk.

Matilda Quote

Making a text-heavy yearbook page

Having a page full of text doesn’t have to look boring!

Many schools decide to include a few text-heavy pages in their yearbook for many different reasons – it could be a welcome letter from the editor, a farewell speech from the Head of Year, or perhaps a summary of the school year from a teacher or pupil.

We’ve come up with a few different ways to put all the text on the page that you need, while making it easy to read. We’ve even included font suggestions for you!
