Cool! Book Club
The modern classic text, Cool! by Michael Morpurgo, appealed to a range of ages and to both boys and girls alike, provoking a lively discussion at this half-term’s Book Club. Congratulations to team St David’s for winning a closely fought quiz.
Next Junior Book Club
The theme of the next Book Club is, Greek Mythology. Pupils can choose between:
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (aimed at older readers) by Rick Riordan or The Orchard Book of Greek Myths (suitable for all) by Geraldine McCaughrean
Rick Riordan’s award winning Percy Jackson series is described as: ‘A fantastic blend of myth and modern. Rick Riordan takes the reader back to the stories we love, then shakes the cobwebs out of them.’ (Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis)
Geraldine McCaughrean’s highly-respected introduction to the best-loved Greek stories is described as: ‘Magnificent… ensuring another generation gets the best possible introduction to these classics.’ (Good Book Guide)
The next Junior Book Club will be held, in Circle Time, on Tuesday 2nd June. As always, those who have read the text, had it read to them or have listened to the audio book are welcome to attend.
