5A Assembly kicks off Book Week

website1Tuck in to a good book!

“The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.”
Roald Dahl, Matilda

Year 5’s assembly, kicked off Book Week with a big, book bust-up!  After the books on the St Edward’s library shelves had, had a bit of ‘I’m-a-better-book-than-you’ argument, they soon learnt that it would be better to work together to ensure that all boys remembered just how great they could be.  There were impassioned pleas to give computers, PlayStations and X-Boxes a break and read a book instead.
