Dear Year 7 and 8,
I’ve been thoroughly impressed this year with all the books you’ve read and how enthusiastically you’ve talked about them! I certainly think it’s helped with your academic progress, but much more importantly than that I hope that it’s shown you new worlds, helped you to imagine and use your imagination and consider endless opportunities, people and places. I hope that literature helps you to explore, question and think in the same way it does me. Well done on all your reading achievements and keep it up!
Next year, you will be reading even more challenging plays, novels and poems. This summer challenge should help you prepare for that as well as offering some light relief in the prelude. Try to read as many of these titles as you can. If you read a book and write a detailed review on it, you will be rewarded with 10 house points. Please hand all completed reviews to your new English teacher or our new librarian, Mrs Wolfe. Below are some suggestions from Mrs Wolfe. These include titles for a range of reading abilities, so there is something for everyone. Best of all, some of these books are free to borrow on RM books. See below for details on how to access these. Have fun and keep reading!
