Literary Delights on Display at Book Tasting Workshop
Last week, our Prep library was magically transformed into a restaurant, complete with a menu of delicious literary delights, suitable for every palate.
Pupils had great fun sampling the many stories presented to them on their “plates” and they enjoyed circulating around the different genres on offer. Gentle classical music added to the sense of occasion. Who knew that reading could be this tasty? And classy?
Meanwhile, in their English lessons, the children have been celebrating reading for pleasure, and have relished in the discussion of their favourite books and authors.
Some of our Year 7 and 8 pupils have even been writing their own book reviews and recommending novels for their friends and classmates.
Year 7 pupil Henry recommended Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve. Describing his reading experience, he said: “I was on the edge of my seat throughout this fantastic book!”
Year 8 pupil Ella also had a positive experience after reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie. “The book was thrilling, gripping and interesting,” she said. “I couldn’t put it down! An inspiring read.”
We have plenty more book-tastic events to look forward to in the Michaelmas Term, including our Prep Book Clubs, Year 7 & 8 Book Breakfast, annual Book Fair, and very special visit from author Megan Rix.
