In KS2, we have five book clubs that run after school, each running on a separate day of the week. The children who attend the book clubs are from Year 5 and Year 6. Book clubs began the week commencing 19th September 2016 and will be running throughout the year. Each book club will read a different book and once the books have been finished, the children will promote the books to the other children in their Year Group. The books currently being read in each club is as follows:
Monday: Journey to the River Sea (by Eva Ibbotson)
Tuesday: The Hobbit (by J. R. R. Tolkein)
Wednesday: The Borrowers (by Mary Norton)
Thursday: 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).
Friday: The Wolf Wilder (by Katherine Rundell)
