Learning Resource Centre Clubs
Lunchtime Board Games
Every lunchtime in the LRC.
Denner Book Club
Carnegie Readers Club
Every year a group of students, from Year 9 upwards, reads the challenging books shortlisted for the CILIP/Carnegie Medal, the UK’s oldest and most prestigious book award. Over 8 weeks in the spring and summer terms, they discuss the books, decide which is their favourite/least favourite, which ones are likely to win and finally, in late June, watch the ceremony, which is livestreamed from London. Are our favourites ever winners? Well, sometimes – but we often guess which one might win! There’s also an Amnesty International Award given at the same ceremony, and this year, one of our favourites, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, had a much deserved win, followed by an inspirational acceptance speech.
Watch out for emails and posters after spring half term and join us!
We think Origami Club is great for anyone who has an interest in art – anyone can join, from beginners to masters.
Whatever stage you’re at – learn how to make arts and crafts with paper – at ORIGAMI CLUB!
This Club runs in the LRC on Friday lunchtimes.
The Carnegie Writers Group
Our Group meets on the first Friday of the month. We enjoy reading each other’s work, if we choose to share it, and writing together. We also have activities that take place, such as research, seasonal writing (eg scary stories at Halloween) or competitions.
