Autumn Term 2015


Members of the Year Five and Six Book Club chose ‘Wonder’ by R.J.Palacio as their book for the second half of the autumn term 2015.


The Book Club children received a free journal with their copy of the book.  They started to read the story in Book Club on 11/11/15.

Everyone’s really enjoying it – and many children have been keen to take their book home to read – or to read it in class.

During the first half of the autumn term 2015, our Year Five and Year Six Book Club children read ‘Gorilla Dawn’ by Gill Lewis.  Gill sent the children bookmarks and a message….

gillDear Malvern Book Club children,

I hope you enjoy reading ‘Gorilla Dawn’. It was an important book for me to write, as everything we do connects us in some way to the natural world. Our 


electronic devices (like the computer I am writing on now) connect us to the fate of the gorilla. You will see how as you read the book.

But although the human characters have a tough time, the story is also one of hope, because I believe that people like you care about the natural world and the people (all of us) and animals whose lives depend upon it. If you have any questions after reading the book, you are more than welcome to ask.

Very best wishes, Gill. (16th September 2015)

Year Five and Year Six Book Club children – lots of smiley faces after receiving their message from Gill Lewis.
