Book Club

Years 6-8 enjoyed a lively Book Club discussion of Arthur Ransome’s ‘Swallows and Amazons’ last week, a highly popular choice. Pupils especially loved that the author was always firmly on the side of the children, and that it brought to life every child’s dream of inhabiting a desert island and having adventures messing around in boats with no adults present. It has even inspired the group to make a map of the woods here at Perrott Hill with their own secret names and places! Even more excitingly, almost 100 years after the book’s first publication, we will be welcoming Sophie Neville (the actress and author who played the original Titty from the 1974 ‘Swallows and Amazons’ film and who is now president of the Arthur Ransome Society) to school later this term for a series of workshops and talks for Years 5-8!
