Further discussions with @idletim (Tim Bleazard Curriculum ICT team Bradford) over twitter further honed the idea and the blog was created by Tim.
My vision was create as many book reviews as possible, then use the Digital Leaders to create the QR codes and then stick them in the library books in readiness to launch our new library on World Book Day. We didn't quite reach that timetable but we did manage to get every child in KS2 to write a book review during the week leading up to World Book Day and are now printing, cutting and sticking the QR codes.
