Exciting News 

Approximately 50 books have been ordered and our new Career and Choices section of the library will be up and running after half term.  If you are in year eight please come down to the library and see what is on offer to help you find information about future subjects, options and careers.  Mrs Adair and Mrs Dourley will be more than happy to help you find what you need.


Britannica Magazine


This week we have been very lucky to receive a free one year subscription to the non-fiction magazine, Britannica.

We have started our subscription with two back issues filled with lots of articles and stories of all kinds.


Non-fiction magazines and books can be very helpful to engage and support children's reading and learning and we are delighted that we will have a new copy in the library every month for the next year.


Britannica magazine is packed with incredible information, facts and stories about the real world which are far more amazing than anything you can make up!  Many of our pupils prefer to read non-fiction texts and this is a wonderful resource to keep them completely up to date.


You can support even more resources for our school if you would like to subscribe to Britannica yourselves.  Please see the link below if you are interested.  Please do remember to select our school at the checkout.

New Books for November

Mrs Dourley is currently reading...


One of our BookBuzz books this year, I thought this sounded like a very interesting way to write a story set in WWII.

Mrs Dourley's most recent review


Having enjoyed all the previous WLTGO books I knew I was going to thoroughly enjoy continuing Elliot's journey to find all the chaos stones and his hope to heal his mum.  Of course Elliot still has the 'help' of The Gods (and Virgo) so you can be assured things won't go smoothly!


This is the third story and Maz Evans continues to write well with strong storylines and delightful characters.  I enjoyed the different places we were taken to this time and the added storyline of Elliot's father returning to Home Farm.


If you liked the other books, this one will not disappoint. 


Highly recommended


Five thumbs up out of five for me.
