In the autumn term, every student and member of staff is given a free copy of the same book to read and the whole school takes part in activities connected with the book. Previous books include The Hunger Games, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Mr Stink, a selection of World War One titles (to commemorate the anniversary of the start of WW1), Wonder by R.J. Palacio and I am Malala.
Parents are invited to join in some of the events.
Here is just some of the feedback we received about previous events:
“We need to share with others how relaxed this workshop was as it might encourage others”
“I felt it was a really nice event, especially to be able to come together and enjoy the event with the whole family”
“I feel that the whole project was run really well and it’s nice to be able to get involved with my child’s work now she is at secondary school”.
