Book Clubs

Our Book Clubs encourage pupils to read books that will challenge them,  further their knowledge of various genres and promote the discussion of books. There is a Year 3 and 4 club and a Year 5 and 6 club, both reading a new book each half term.

Pupils do not have to join and read every single book, but simply join if they like the look of an individual book. We announce the next books in advance so there is plenty of time for families to purchase a copy (there is a 25% discount available from Regency Bookshop in Surbiton when mentioning our Book Clubs).

At the end of each half term the clubs meet over a picnic lunch to discuss the book.

We have also begun a parents book club. If you would like to join us please contact Mrs O'Donoghue.

discussion on 10 February

12.20 - 12.50pm

D.J. and his friend Gina are totally normal kids. But Hilo isn't! Hilo doesn’t know where he came from, or what he’s doing on Earth (or why going to school in only your underwear is a BAD idea!) . . . But UH-OH, what if Hilo wasn’t the only thing to fall to our planet? Can the trio unlock the secrets of Hilo's past? Can Hilo SURVIVE a day at school? Find out in HILO-a laugh-out-loud, epic story of friendship! Adventure! (and the occasional mutant robot ant).

Dylan Malone, aka Beaky, has a habit for telling porkies – every time he opens his mouth, out pops a whopper… But then his long-suffering sister shoves him into the truth-telling machine at Madame Shirley’s Marvellous Emporium of Peculiarities. Now Beaky can't tell a lie – not even a teeny-weeny one – and a truth-telling Beaky is even worse...
