John the Baptist Resource Centre – JBC News
This month the Resource Centre hosted Tim Pegler, author of Five Parts Dead and Game as Ned. Tim launched the Premiers’ Reading Challenge in a lively presentation to the Year 7 students and spent some lunchtimes talking to students about reading and writing. He also worked with the Year 10 students who are currently studying Five Parts Dead. It is a rare opportunity to be able to discuss a text being studied as a part of the English Curriculum, with the author and our students responded very well.
We have enjoyed thinking about fiction and reading this term as we launched into the National Year of Reading. Next term we will continue to promote some of the wonderful reading materials we have available as well as our online resources. For a sneak preview you can view the JBC webpage via the intranet.
