Ravenor’s Book clubs

Book Clubs:

In KS2 some of our children from Year 5 and Year 6 participate in an after school book club. Here are some of the books that the children have read:

Journey to the River Sea (by Eva Ibbotson)

“This is an interesting story that takes the reader on an armchair adventure across the sea.” (Louie, Year 5)

The Hobbit (by J. R. R. Tolkein)

“This is a very enjoyable book. If you like excitement then this is the book for you.” (Faheem, Year 6)

“This is an adventure book that shouldn’t be left on the shelf. A must read.” (Charnae, Year 6)

The Borrowers (by Mary Norton

“This is an adventurous story with a surprising ending. I recommend this book as it was so enjoyable to read.” (Luke, Year 6)

 Carrie’s War (by Nina Bawden)

“Carrie’s War is a story that takes the reader on an emotional rollercoaster because throughout the book the main characters experience many ups and downs. This story is set during World War II and enables the reader to empathise with the characters who were evacuated during this time. We highly recommend this book because good things come in small packages and even though this is a relatively short story, it is packed full of adventures and excitement. It is a book not to be missed.” (by Zarah N. and Yusuf).

Wonder (by R. J Palacio)

This is an inspirational novel because it depicts the struggle and hardship faced by Auggie- the protagonist. A must read.” (Lauren-Ava, Year 6)

“This book is one of the best books I have ever read as it really made me think.” (Rudra, Year 6)

Bubble Boy (by Stewart Foster)

“This is a poignant story about a boy who is trapped inside a bubble. I would highly recommend this moving story.” (Faye, Year 6)

The Wolf Wilder (by Katherine Rundell)

“This is a gripping story that made me never want to put the book down.” (Dev, Year 6)

The Graveyard Book (by Neil Gaiman)

“This book is a book that takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I would definitely recommend it.” (Yusef, Year 6)
