Some of our favourite events in our Library have not taken place for a very long time. We are so looking forward to hosting our popular Breakfast With Boys, Bring Your Teacher to Breakfast and Ladies That Lunch events again (and update the photographs).
Extra Curricular Activities
As well as a range of targeted interventions, to which specific students will be invited, we also run a range of literacy-based activities throughout the week, as shown on the LRC timetable. Please note that for lunchtime activities, students may eat their lunch in the Library.
Tuesday KS3 Lunch – Topical Talk
This is a news and current affairs discussion club. Any student in years 7-9 who is interested in what is going on in the world, should come along and join us for a lively discussion over lunch. Topics discussed recently include: do animals have feelings?; sport and mental health; vaccine passports; gaming regulations. Learn how to express your opinions, whilst listening carefully to others.
Wednesday KS3 Lunch – Manga & Anime
Join like-minded fans of this phenomenon of Japanese publishing to share your favourites, create artwork and experience other elements of Japanese culture and crafts. A very popular club, so make sure you arrive early!
Friday KS3 Lunch – Bookbusters Reading Club
Come along for a lively lunch where you will have the chance to share your favourite reads and discover new authors and titles. We take part in shadowing various book awards including The Carnegie Medal, The Information Book Award and The Royal Society Young Person’s Book Award (Science). This year we will be launching our own Beauchamps Teen Book Award, so be instrumental in starting this new venture.
