Our Book Club has been set up to encourage children across the school to read for pleasure. We feel it is very important for our children to engage with books, and to be able to discuss them with their peers. The Book Club is a friendly place where we enjoy a drink and a snack whilst discussing the story.
Foundation and Key Stage 1 children have read 'I Need a Wee' by Sue Hendra. We enjoyed re-reading the story and telling each other what we liked about it.
Our Lower Key Stage 2 Book Club members' book is 'Badly Drawn Beth' by Knife and Packer. Here the discussion has centred around our favourite or funny parts of the story, the layout of the text and who the book was aimed at.
Upper Key Stage 2's book is 'The Parent Agency' by David Baddiel. We had a very lively and engaging discussion about the plot, the characters and the fact that the grass is not always greener...or as one member said, 'Your own meadow is best'! Well done UKS2 Book Club!
Here's what some of the children think about their Book Club book and Book Club!
