THE WILD ABOUT BOOKS CLUB

At the Story Room we are Wild About Books! These workshops are bookable as a block of four. Over that period your child will read one book (we supply the books). They will discuss the book, do creative writing tasks based it, and vocabulary and comprehension exercises to help develop their understanding of what they are reading. There may even be the opportunity to dress up and re-enact parts of the story! Each session will lead your child to a deeper appreciation of the story and the characters. So let’s have fun and  get Wild About Book

TEEN BOOK CLUB (years 7, 8 and 9)

This book club is for children in years 7, 8, 9 and 10. In each session we discuss the book of the month. There is so much to discuss in teen/YA fiction that we always have a session filled with questions,  debate and discussion of the issues that arise within the books. We have read autobiographies, historical fiction, poetry,  modern and classic fiction (to name a few of the many genres). There is something on the bookshelves to interest every type of reader for this age group. If your child would like to join a friendly group of book lovers, then this is the place to be. If your child is a reluctant reader, we will do our very best to change their attitude to books and reading.

Conor started attending The Story Room as a reluctant reader and anxious writer; a boy with a fantastic vocabulary and great ideas but all trapped inside his mind, lacking the confidence or ability to express himself on paper.  He has transformed into an enthusiastic, confident and excited young man with a hearty appetite for reading and an ability to translate his thoughts into written words. Most importantly The Story Room has given him self-belief in an environment he feels he belongs to where his ideas have value.  Book Club is simply genius.” SM

My ten year old son has been going to book club for 4 months and it has transformed his attitude to books and reading. He has changed from a boy who was reluctant to pick up a book to child who doesn’t want to put his book down because he wants to find out what happens next. I can’t wait till my younger child is old enough to go too.’ GA
