Book, book, book club

So, we’ve been having a bit of a think and we’ve come up with a plan. A plan that we think will add some excitement to the reading experiences of children in and around Brentwood. I say ‘we’, it was actually Mr Frog’s idea, but as he says, he’s the ‘ideas man’ and then I put the details together…we are a great team.

Book Club

From the 7th June, we will be running a monthly book club for children aged 8+. The club will take place on the first Saturday of each month, 15:15-16:00*. For the cost of just £7, I (Mrs Chicken) will lead a discussion and activity based upon a given book. The cost will include a copy of the month’s book to take home and love! We will ask you to book your place in advance, so that we order in enough copies of the books. Each month the children will receive a new book, which they are invited to read in their own time, and then bring with them in the following meeting. (Gosh, I’ve said ‘book’ a lot – sorry).

On the 5th June meeting, we will give out the book and read the beginning together, before having a good old discussion about it, followed by a book-based activity. The children will be given a choice of titles to vote on for the following month’s book.

*For the sharp-witted amongst you, you will notice that this means our younger Creative Writing Club will be affected. So, as of the 7th June, we will be merging the Creative Writing Clubs into one session every week. To clarify, Creative Writing Club will run from 16:00-17:30 every week for all ages, with a monthly Book Club preceding it. If your child wishes to attend both clubs, there will be a discounted fee of £10, because we’re nice like that!

Just in case I haven’t said it enough, book, book, book…
