COMING SOON! Events in the Library

We have an exciting programme of events to look forward to in our Library this term. These are just a few.

Harry Potter Book Night

A group of 20 students will be celebrating the popular series of Harry Potter books with a special event organised by some of our Year 10 students. Participants will share opinions on their favourite scenes and characters and the Year 10 organisers have arranged food, games and quizzes for everyone’s enjoyment. This event has taken place every year at King James but we are sure it is destined to be even more magical as students take ownership of the event planning.

World Book Day

Next month, we will be celebrating World Book Day with themed assemblies and events taking place across the whole school. Students will also be given £1.00 book tokens to redeem on a variety of books available on the day. Our theme this year will be around Sophie Anderson’s book, The House with Chicken Legs.

Visit from Author, Sophie Anderson

Author, Sophie Anderson will be visiting us to work with students in Years 7 and 8. Firstly, she will be delivering a presentation in the Main Hall where she will discuss her book and techniques for successful writing, then selected students will be able to take part in a workshop to help develop their own creative writing skills. Personally signed copies of Sophie’s book will also be available to purchase for £5.00.

World Poetry Day

In March, we will take part in World Poetry Day by celebrating our favourite poems and poets with assemblies for each year group with a focus on performance poetry and how poems are read with expression. We will also be using famous poems around school to inspire our students.
