Reading for Pleasure
Every week, a large number of students have spent time at lunchtimes and after school reading with English staff. An array of books are currently being read including To Kill A Mockingbird, The Fault in Our Stars, The Hunger Games, Paper Towns and Finding Alaska.
- “The book is challenging but it is interesting to learn new vocabulary.”
- “It is fun to read a book outside of lesson time.”
- “I have been reading the book at home as well because I enjoy it.”
Every Wednesday, a group of aspiring writers join together to write about current events in and outside of school. So far this year, they have covered sporting events, the bake sale, house events and more recently, the Scholastic Book Fair.
Scholastic Book Fair hits King Charles
During the course of the week 4th-8th December, students enjoyed the good deals of the half price book fair in the library at break and lunch. Many students bought books like Wonder, Alex Rider and gaming guides such as Minecraft. Elewyn Page said it was “a great way of motivating people to read!” and the librarian, Mrs Breese, agreed: “The book fair has been extremely popular and it has done really well.”
We hope next year will have the same results.
