Bookclub

Heidi's Place Book Club is a wonderful interactive program aimed at sharing the joy of reading and discussion, showing children that 'just reading a book' is only the beginning!  Register your interest here.

Our junior bookclub - currently for 6-9 year olds, meets every 6 weeks for a one hour, fun-filled, activity-packed session. Facilitated by experienced and qualified education officer - Gale leads the group through relevant activities based on the book they have chosen. Structure ensures the session runs well, but flexibility helps to increase language skills. A maximum of 8 members per group allows each individual an opportunity to express ideas and opinions.  Group work and partnerships provide a ‘safety net’ for the shy. 

Sharing a text that one might not usually select, is a marvelous way of being introduced to new vocabulary, settings, characters and fascinating new worlds. Gently we expand our comfort zone.  It develops character growth and self-confidence.
