St. Paul’s December Year 9 book talk

This month year 9 students had the opportunity to listen to a book talk. These are 30 minute talks which aim to build enthusiasm for reading and introduce new authors and titles to our pupils to broaden their experiences of reading.  

 Titles discussed at the book talk were:

Girls book talk:

 Please encourage your child to read as many books as possible on the list, to discuss with you what they are reading and to share their ideas about books with their peers, either by writing a review on Eclipse, our online system, or by recommending a book to a friend. These new titles are available in our school library now. 

 Thank you for your continued support for reading.
