Lock-down version 3 didn't stop six of our students from years 10, 11 and 12 enjoying a virtual book club with Mrs Kenton-Barnes and Mrs Kidd. We read 'Goodbye, Perfect' by Sara Barnard (a prize-winning YA author) and met regularly on Google Meet to discuss the issues raised in the story. We were then fortunate enough to have a Google Meet with the author herself!
Our students were a credit to the school and impressed Sara so much that she has gifted the eight of us a free copy of her new book (before it hits the shelves!) entitled 'Destination Anywhere'. We look forward to reading this book before the public get their hands on it, and giving feedback to Sara in another Google Meet.
I've delighted in running this extra-curricular club and I have a KS3 book club in the pipeline. Keep your eyes peeled for updates!
Have a wonderful Easter, Mrs Kenton-Barnes.
