BOOK CLUB

Welcome to our Book Club page!

At Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Primary School we want to develop every child's passion for reading.  We encourage our children to read lots of different types of books to develop their reading skills, expand their knowledge and become inspired.

Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance.  Likewise, evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who do not, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.

 

Miss Byrne runs three different lunchtime Book Clubs per week for Key Stage 2 children.

During the book clubs our children:

  • read and review a variety of books for fun
  • discuss topics that relate to them
  • communicate face-to-face
  • learn to respect each other's different opinions
  • think creatively
FIND US ON TWITTER

Our Book Club has its own twitter account dedicated to all things Book Club, books and the enjoyment of reading!

It's a good way of keeping in touch during the "Covid-19 Lockdown".

 

We would love to see more of your book reviews - you don't have to be in book club. Tweet them to us and maybe you'll grab the attention of one of your favourite authors too!  You can find us here https://twitter.com/OLQPBookClub

This girl from Thursday Book Club is tweeting reviews of the books she is reading during lock down, which we are loving! She even got a retweet and reply from the author of this book!
