Twelve-year-old Aru Shah has a tendency to stretch the truth in order to fit in at school. While her classmates are jetting off to family vacations in exotic locales, she’ll be spending her autumn break at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture, waiting for her mum to return from her latest archaeological trip. Is it any wonder that Aru makes up stories about being royalty, travelling to Paris, and having a chauffeur?

A little about the book:

On an ordinary day, in an even more ordinary town, it was Albert’s birthday.

When Grandma Z roars into town on her motorcycle, Albert is swept up in a very extraordinary adventure.

This glorious debut from Daniel Gray-Barnett is filled with wonder, imagination, and a wild, magical spirit that will thrill young and old.

We know that children (and teachers!) need a break in the summer. But, we also know that a bit of routine is a good thing. So, we will be running our own summer school, throughout the break.
The morning sessions will be academic (and fun), focusing on numeracy and literacy. Afternoons will be filled with more practical sessions, including drama, cooking and craft.

Each day costs £40, or £145 for all 4 sessions. (Monday 30th July, 6th August, 13th August, 20th August).

Children will be provided with a snack and all materials, but will need to bring a packed lunch.

Spaces are limited, and must be booked and paid for in advance. Ages 8-11 years old.
