On Friday 23rd June 2017 we had an inspirational visit from the author Bali Rai. He was given a tour of our academy. He also encouraged pupils to read for pleasure as well as information. He talked about how reading can help you to develop skills and grow as a person in life. In his interactive assemblies he also talked about the multicultural society that we live in and British Values. In the afternoon, Bali Rai was interviewed by the Library Monitors and on Ark Radio. He also signed books and autographs for pupils and staff. It was a brilliant day!

The Book of the Month for November 2016 is Bulging Brains from the Horrible Science Series. This book is written by Nick Arnold who is coming to our academy to help us celebrate National Children’s Book Week.
‘Bulging Brains’ puts the brain under the spotlight. It explains how brain surgery is performed, and includes fantastic fact files, curious quizzes, teacher tests and crazy cartoons.
This book is a must for people who have an interest in Science. It is written well and will definitely appeal to all ages and both genders. Bulging Brains is very informative and very interesting. The illustrations are brilliant!
I would definitely recommend this book to be read!
