Perse students go Beyond the Book
The inaugural meeting of Beyond the Book – a new book club – was held on Tuesday 3 November to discuss Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird.
An engaging group of fourteen students, ranging from Year 7 to Year 12 attended this first discussion session, with a similar number expected next week. Beyond the Book aims to open up students to a range of classic literature that they may feel reluctant to approach unaided, and provides them with the opportunity to informally discuss their opinions and responses.
This half term the students will also read Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, a short and accessible introduction to perhaps the most famous Victorian novelist.
