Addicted to Reading

Meetings of Corby Book Addicts have been even louder and busier than normal this term.

We started the year perfecting our reviewing skills by writing book reviews on the wide selection of books students read over the summer.  These reviews have been added to the Library Catalogue, which will soon be available online via the Academy website.


We then held a spectacular Roald Dahl Day celebration with quizzes, really revolting rhyme writing and chocolate cakes delivered direct from Willy Wonka's factory.  Year 7 Alpha group had started the festivities with a celebratory quiz and indulgent Wily Wonka chocolate tasting earlier in the day.  Roald Dahl's books remain a favourite of many readers, regardless of age, so the opportunity to celebrate his fantastic work on a national scale once a year is something we all look forward to.


We are now busy every week, furiously writing to our favourite authors with the intention of setting up a CBAs author autograph book. 


All students are welcome to join CBAs which is held every Thursday during Session 3  in the Library.
