Book Club is on a break for the first half-term of 2021-22!
Book Club is open to Years 3-6. Last Term we read the classic children’s story: Tom’s Midnight Garden, which Class 2 will be going to see a performance of at Theatre by the Lake in December.
*It’s important that if children sign up to book club then parents/carers commit to supporting their children to complete the required reading each week.*
In Book Club we pick a book to read together over the course of a term or half-term. As well as being an enjoyable time to spend together, it’s a great chance to read for pleasure and improve our reading comprehension skills.
It’s also a opportunity to dig a little deeper into the world-views, experiences and ideas that we encounter in literature.
In the past we have chosen contrasting books such as The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe, and Northern Lights by C.S. Lewis and Phillip Pullman. Exploring books like these alongside each other is a great way to think about how two different authors can approach the same topic from very different perspectives.
The club forms part of our Christian vision as we seek to cultivate a love of learning and a desire to understand the worldviews & experiences of others so that we can better relate to them.
