Book Club is restarting from Week 1 of Summer Term 2021!
Book Club is open to Years 3-6. This half-term we will be reading the classic children’s story: Tom’s Midnight Garden.
*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.
