School Book Club Latest

Children from Butleigh, Baltonsborough, Meare and Ashcott Primary Schools met to discuss the latest story their school Book Clubs have been reading - After Tomorrow by gillian Cross. The books have been funded by Wells Festival of Literature and Mrs Ann Louise McKaig from the Festival came to join in the discussion. 

It's very topical, since it's about refugees - and imagining what it would be like to be British people escaping persecution. Five banks have failed, food prices are rocketing and no-one has the money to pay for it. Armed robbers target anyone who has food, and post their details on the internet. Matt's family, who grow their own food, have to escape and, along with many other people, try to get through the Channel Tunnel to the continent. As one pupil said, "I'm glad it's not happening to us in reality". Mrs Crowe, year 5/6 teacher at Butleigh who lead the session said

"Reading books like this is a safe way of exploring a situation, without actually having to live it yourself; the children enjoyed the book very much".
