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 Reese, Georgia and Alexis...

Three Year 8s have been discussing their latest reading adventures as part of our Cool Reader series.

Reese is reading ‘A Different Sort of Normal’ by Abigail Balfe.

“It’s about a girl growing up with autism and it is her different view of life,” said Reese. “My favourite author is Rachel Russell who wrote Dork Diaries.”

Reese likes Science the best and said: “I want to be a marine biologist in the future, I love turtles!”

Georgia is reading ‘Wonder’ by RJ Palacio.

“It’s about a boy who has a facial disfigurement and keeps getting bullied. It is an interesting book.

“My favourite author is David Walliams as his books make me laugh.”

Georgia enjoys PE and said: “I play football for Cadley Under 14s in midfield. My dream is to be a professional footballer like Chloe Kelly.”

Alexis is reading ‘Talking to Alaska’ by Anna Woltz.

“I am a bit confused by it at the moment as I have just started it. It’s about a girl who is at school and a dog called Alaska! My favourite novels are horror ones.

“I like Art and Graphic Design in school and I would like to be an artist.”
