Library Blog

As mentioned in our first blog post, the library has been working with the PTA and the English Department to provide new English reading lists for KS3, KS4 and KS5.

Books link

Most of the books for these reading lists are now available to borrow in the library and the lists can be found on Firefly in the English Department resources section. There is a wonderful variety of books, including fiction and non-fiction, biographical, scientific and historical. Fiction title genres include general fiction, crime and mystery, fantasy, science fiction and historical fiction. There are well known classics as well as newer popular titles for teens and young adults. The lists will be further updated in the coming weeks as more books become available, and I will be posting my own recommendations in coming blog posts. To find out my recommendations for this week please continue to the next post.

 

Librarian’s recommendations from our English reading lists: 

book1

KS3: A Kestrel for a Knave by Barry Hines is about troubled Yorkshire boy Billy Casper who lives in a small mining town. Unhappy at home and in school, Billy finds new joy in life after he finds and befriends a kestrel, named Kes.   

book2

KS4: I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith is a novel about growing up and falling in love for the first time. Cassandra Mortmain writes in her journal about life in a run-down old castle with her sister, brother, and eccentric father. One day the American heirs to the castle show up, and nothing will ever be quite the same. 

book3

KS5: The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco is a historical novel set in 1327. Brother William is sent to investigate Benedictine monks accused of heresy, but the story takes a turn after a series of suspicious deaths!
