Mrs Gidden's cool reader's club - Alexa
26 May 2022
Here's what our Cool Readers Club is all about...
These are our reading stars put forward by their English teacher. We interview them about their current book, what they like reading about and what they like to do when they’re not reading. Introducing Alexa...
Alexa is super sporty but does find time for reading.
Alexa enjoys swimming and is aiming to swim at Leyland Barracudas Swimming Club competitively, she plays netball for Newman and is also part of D&T Dance and Fitness.
“We do all kinds of dance such as street, hip hop, cheer, lyrical and contemporary,” said Year 7 Alexa.
She is currently reading ‘The House with Chicken Legs’ by Sophie Anderson.
“It’s about a house with chicken legs which travels to different places, people live there and they guide the dead through the gate. I like fantasy books the best.
“I like the author Katherine Rundell and I enjoyed the book ‘The Explorer’ which is an adventure book and there are new worlds to learn about.”
In school Alexa said: “My favourite subject is French, I like to learn new languages.”
Anna's English teacher, Ms Smith added,
" Alexa is a marvellous reader and we often discuss the books she’s reading – as I’m a fan of them too! I’m hoping her love of the mythology explored in Sophie Anderson’s book supports her curiosity about the world around her – specifically her love of foreign languages."
