Junior Book Club

The Fox and the Ghost King Junior Book Club

Michael Morpurgo’s tale of ghostly royalty, unlikely sporting victories and football frenzied foxes chasing an impossible dream, proved a real hit with our younger Book Club members.

It was anybody’s game, with very little separating the three teams at the top of the table, however, St David’s 1 snatched victory in our closest ever Book Club, coming top of the league!

The Graveyard Book Junior Book Club

World Book Day was the perfect backdrop to our latest Book Club quizzes. Many pupils attended dressed as their favourite literary characters and some even took inspiration from the chosen text, Neil Gaiman’s Graveyard Book. Congratulations to team Bute for narrowly winning a closely contested quiz.

Next Junior Book Club

The next book Club texts are fantasy adventures:

Lionboy by Zizou Corder (aimed at older pupils) or Nim’s Island by Wendy Orr (suitable for all)

Review for Lion Boy: Sparkles with wisdom and wisecracks… startlingly original in characters, setting and plot (The Independent)

Review for Nim’s Island: A fantasy tale as welcome as a breath of fresh, tropical air (Publishers Weekly)

The next Junior Book Club will be held, in Period 4, on Wednesday 8th May. As always, those who have read the text, had it read to them or have listened to the audiobook are welcome to attend.

Happy reading,

Mrs J Cooney and Mr R Dennis
