About the Event
Story Bites Book Club is our inclusive book club for children aged 7 - 11 years (KS2)
We meet in the emporium on the second Sunday of the month to discuss a book that the group have read or listened to before the session. During the session we explore the book through games, activities and discussion. Each month there is a choice of book, one with an interest age of 7 - 9 and the other with an interest age of 9+. We encourage the children to choose books based on interest age rather than ability as we find they get more out of the activities this way.
In January both groups will read the same book.
Books are available to collect from the emporium a month before the session, or they can be posted out to you.
Parents do not stay for this event. All of our staff are enhanced DBS checked.
About the book:
Scrap by Guy Bass
The year was Something Something. Humans had spread like peanut butter across the galaxy, looking for new planets to call Somewhere. One of those planets was Somewhere Five One Three. When the humans arrive on Somewhere 513, they discover that the robots sent to prepare the planet for Humanity's arrival have chosen to keep it for themselves. Only one robot remains loyal - K1-NG, aka King of the Robots. But even with the most powerful robot on their side, the outlawed humans don't stand a chance. Ten years on, Gnat and her sister Paige are the only humans left and have spent their lives hidden underground. Now they must venture out in search of the one robot that stood by the humans. There's just one problem - the once mighty K1-NG has vowed never to help another human for as long as he lives...
