Crater Lake Author Visit
On 28th January we will be hosting an author via video call, to talk to our Year 7 students. The 45 minute session will be during Period 5 and Jennifer Killick, the author of Crater Lake, will be discussing reading for pleasure, writing tips and answering their questions about the book.
Crater Lake was a very popular choice for Bookbuzz this year, so many students may already have the book to read. However, students are welcome to purchase the book via ParentPay, if they don’t have it already, for £3.60. The deadline for payments is the end of day on Wednesday 16th December.
Miss Downey will be running three Book Club sessions for Crater Lake and students will have their copies at the start of January in preparation for these:
- 11th January – Discussing first impressions of the book and up to chapter 5. This will also include a game that is featured in the book.
- 18th January – Discussing chapter 5 to 15, our opinions on characters and theories of what is going to happen.
- 25th January – The final Book Club, for anyone that has finished the book. Creating questions for Jennifer Killick and a Book Review Competition where signed bookplates are up for grabs, winners will be announced at the event.
These sessions will be on Google Classrooms for all Year 7 students to access content and Miss Downey would like to encourage all parents/carers to discuss and read this title at home with you children.
