We have tried to answer some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), which we think you would have asked during the visits.
Introduction to the School Departments
Awesome Audible – FREE books!
Fact: Reading for 20 minutes a day can improve your overall grades by 2 (GCSE grading) in most subjects! Reading widens vocabulary and improves grammar and spelling, this means smarter writing and essay responses!
Don’t like reading?…..Research has also shown that listening to books is just as useful as reading them in the traditional way – Hurrah!
Challenge – pick an audible book and when you’ve finished it, write a review that I can add, for others to read, on our webpage!
This year to welcome you to St Laurence we are taking part in the BookBuzz program. Every new year 7 will receive a free book from a selection of 17 which you get to choose and keep. Perhaps you’d like to look at the BookBuzz website and start thinking about which book you would like?
What to read next?
We know that sometimes it’s possible to get stuck with your favourite authors, so the ILC team have put together some posters with lots of inspiration of books you might like to try next. So if you love David Walliams, Jacqueline Wilson, Beast Quest, Harry Potter and lots of others have a look and see if you can find something new to try. You never know you might find your new favourite! Select each thumbnail image below to enlarge.
