Joining a Book Club and reading with friends ...
Mrs O'Rorke arranged a fabulous Reading for Pleasure event for her twenty-four Year 7 students last week. It was held at the Maltings and many family members joined them to celebrate the fantastic work they had created.
The students had formed Book Clubs and read the same book as their friends. They then created some work in response to what they had read. They were very proud to share this with their parents! There was also a representative from Waterstones showcasing new releases and encouraging further reading. It was a really terrific event appreciated by both students and parents!
This is what a few of the students thought about being part of a Book Club:
Not much 'silence in court' last week when the first session of our new Mock Court Club was launched! Another fabulous Eggar's Experience offering, this club is devised and run by Year 7s for Year 7s. https://t.co/I1HPSwALsv #WeAreEggars https://t.co/2Fx5eo29Dy 6:09 PM - 20 Jan 2022
At this month's Lecture Club, there was some thoughtful debate on the difficult topic of eating disorders. Emmerdale actress Gemma Oaten gave a heartfelt account of her own personal experience. https://t.co/swU1qbDbPh #WeAreEggars https://t.co/aX0UzdRXf0 2:36 PM - 19 Jan 2022
We had a lovely day with a delightful group of Year 5 students from Chawton Primary School yesterday. Here they are with some Block Bots they designed and made in Design & Technology! https://t.co/yHY3VsuT8x 6:41 PM - 18 Jan 2022
