Boys book club

Boys book club week 2

Boys book club continued this week. KS1 read some more of the Pirate Dinosaurs book. They acted out being a pirate, designed their own pirate dinosaur and discussed language like ‘gleaming’ and ‘peculiar’.

KS2 boys continued to look at the ‘Rabbits’ text by Shaun Tan this week. They discussed how it was similar to pirates, an invasion and war. One child stated ‘the markings on the backs look tribal, as if they are ready for war’. Another child discussed how the rabbits looked to be planning and using new technology. This allowed the conversation to move to debating whether new technology is good or bad! Brilliant boys!

Boys book club

The first boys book club took place this afternoon with an amazing turnout from KS2. Year one boys enjoyed reading our pirate story and the juniors were engrossed in ‘Rabbits’

Hoping as many, if not more boys come next week.
