Junior Book Club
The latest Book Club text, ‘Twist of Gold’ by Michael Morpurgo, was warmly received by Book Club members. All quiz teams were able to demonstrate a great empathy for the characters and an impressive knowledge of the setting, mid 19th century Ireland and America. Their depth of understanding provoked an insightful and interesting discussion. Congratulations to all who read the book and took part in the quiz, especially to the winning team, Mostyn 1.
The next Book Club will be held on Wednesday 15th January 2014. Many pupils are already busy reading the proposed text, ‘The One Hundred and One Dalmatians’, by Dodie Smith. Walt Disney based his 1961 film of the same name on this text and it therefore needs no introduction. It is intended to be a fun, mid-winter adventure to curl up with by the fire this Christmas. As always, those who have read the text or had it read to them are welcome to attend.
