Millfield Book Club

A weekly Book Club began in October 2021, which involved all adults in school, from teachers to office staff, sharing and reading a book to children from Year 1 to Year 6. The adult reading explains to the children why they chose their text before sharing the text with children over a Google Hangout, which allows the children to see the pages more clearly. Some adults choose books they had loved reading with their own children, others read a new text type that they know some children would love, such as choose your own adventure books, and some read a book that had tempted them and therefore, they want to share it with the school. 
After being read, the books are added to a school hall display so that the children can ask to read the text if they enjoyed it. In every classroom with their teacher, the children discuss their opinions of the text read by the adult.
