Junior Book Club News
At the end of last term, Book Club members voted to read ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’, as a summer read. J K Rowling obviously had them spellbound during the long summer holiday and the location of this half-term’s Book Club, deep in Forest School, added a further touch of magic to the first meeting of the year.
As usual, pupils were divided into teams to be quizzed on their understanding and recall of the text. Their comprehension of the twists and turns of this complex plot proved to be outstanding. Congratulations to Gryffindor (aka De la Salle) for an impressive, winning performance.
The next Book Club text, ‘Twist of Gold’, by Michael Morpurgo, was also chosen by Book Club members. Set against the backdrop of Ireland gripped by famine in 1847, it follows Sean and Annie’s struggle for survival as it takes them on a daring journey across America against all the odds.
Junior Book Club will next be held on Wednesday 6th November, in Circle Time. As always, all those who have read the book or had it read to them are welcome to attend.
