Year 7 Book Club

Over the past term Year 7 Book Club have been reading and reviewing six science books for the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize. Each week we discuss the books and students take home a book to read. We judged the books based on  four criteria, Ease of reading, Interest, Look and feel and Inspiration. 

There has been some great feedback about the books included on the list, for example Zabella said that Under the Stars by Lisa Harvey-Smith was her favourite and it taught her a lot about astrophysics in an engaging way. All the students agreed that 100 Things to Know about Saving the Planet was the best book overall, which included facts about using old jeans to keep your house warm and other ideas to protect earth. 

Next term we are going to be reading The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon and we cannot wait to get started!
